    I am trying to fix a friend's computer (running Windows 2000 ). On this computer, I am not able to create a new dial-up connection because the computer keeps telling me that the name I enter for connection is invalid. That is, when making a new connection, I can enter the phone number to dial, and all other options. But, an error message appears whenever I enter the connection name. "The name xxxxx is invalid..." I have tried all sorts of names, and I am convinced that it is not connection name that is the problem. Of course, at this point, I can go no further with the process and I have to quit the wizard.

    I think that the network and dial-up system is damaged somehow. I have tried re-installing networking components, but this changes nothing. Is there any way to re-install dial-up networking on Windows 2000, or to fix this problem?

    I appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Try running cmd (sfc) to see if this clears it.
