Hi-Lately, everytime I boot up my "dial up connection" box appears during boot, have to click on the X at least 10+ times for it to go away. If I check startup with msconfig, what is most likely to cause this? Doesn't seem to cause any operating problems, just annoying as I do most of my work offline--Thanks! Steve in PA.

Hi thedome!

Let the dial up connection software load.
The start-up behavior settings should be in it's options, settings, or preferences...

Uncheck 'load at windows start-up' or whatever similar meaning phrase that you find...

Reboot.

Hi Again.

You should also be able to stop it by editing the start-up list.

If you would like to remove it from start-up...

Click Start>Run...
Type "msconfig"
Click 'OK'
Click the 'Startup' tab.
Scroll down until you see the program that you think relates to the dial-up connection start-up.
(If you are not sure which one, try to copy and paste the results here and we'll try to pick it out)
Un-check that program.
Click 'OK'
Reboot.

Note: this should not in any way affect the proper functioning of your dial-up connection. It is just loading at the wrong time.
