Every other time I click on Internet explorer to first open it up, I get the, "No connection found" and a choice to "Work offline or Try again." This is obviously an error since I am connected via cable and I don't ever shut off the modem or unplug anything. So how do I fix it?

I'm runing Win 98 SE
HP PAV
128 RAM
Pentium 2

Thanx in advance for any help

You can try this:

REGISTRY FIX TO 'NO CONNECTION--TRY AGAIN' PROBLEM

1- Edit the following key value...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WebCheck
2- Change the LoadLCE and the LoadSens values from "yes" to "auto"
3- The computer must be rebooted for the changes to take effect. If these values get changed back by themselves after a reboot, then check the Run key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run If you find an entry called "loadwc", delete it and reboot again.

Before making any registry changes--BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FILES

Well, so far so good..I did the first 2 entries, rebooted and it changed back to "yes". So I changed it back, rebooted and this time the first one stayed at "auto" and the 2nd one changed back to "yes." I looked for the the entry under the Run key, but it wasn't there, but everyting seems to be running fine...except for a VPN problem I'm having, but I'll put that in a new post, since it was there before. Thanx for the help!
