Hello,

I recently reinstalled Windows 2000 Pro on one of my older laptops ,a Compaq Presario 1235. Well, upon completion of the Windows installation, I tried to create a new internet connection using the Internet Connection Wizard. I chose to "Transfer my existing internet account to this computer," at which point I get a message saying: "The Internet connection wizard has not finished setting up your internet connecion. Are you sure you want to close the wizard?" I press "no" but then I get the same message over and over again. The only way to get out of that message is to press "yes" and close the wizard.

Also, I have chosen to use the "set up internet connection manually" option in the Internet Connection Wizard as well, but I also get a problem (a different message, however). I go through all the neccessary procedures, typing in the number that will be dials and username/password etc. However, once I have completed the steps and get to the "Completing The Internet Wizard" prompt and press "Finish," I recieve a message saying, "Cannot create a new dial-up networking connection for your internet service provider. Try creating a connection by double-clicking Dial-Up Networking in My Computer" I have attempted using that advice, but I really dont know what it means.

Any suggestions? Thanks. Also, I use SBC Yahoo! as an ISP, don't know if that may be a problem.
