    I need to reinstall RAS on a Windows 2000 Professional computer for a
    customer.
    I've tried reinstalling TCP/IP and that didn't do it.
    Every time I try to run the inetwiz to set up a new connection I can put the
    phone number in and the password but as soon as I try to save the connection
    with any name I get a popup that says "Connection is not a valid name. The
    entry name must contain at least one character that is not a space and can
    not contain a period. Choose a different name."
    It doesn't matter what I name it the same thing pops up.
    I've done a repair installation of 2000, run spyware killers and antivirus
    and nothing has worked yet. I looked at a bunch of pages on the internet
    but I don't have time to play with this any more.

    Yes. SP 2 was on the disk with 2000 and I put SP3 on after I downloaded it.
