Dial up setting in IE won't stay applied

    I having a weird problem. My dial up networking
    connection is automatically resetting itself to "never dial a connection". I
    can go into IE options and change it back to "always dial my default
    connection", and apply then OK. But as soon as I close IE and open it back,
    it has changed to "never dial a connection".

    I've searched google and usenet and found various examples of the same
    thing, but found no solution that works. I have to manually make a
    connection and then open IE to browse.

    I've virus checked and checked for spyware, no change.

    I would appreciate immensely any advice offered.

    I am running Xp and IE 6.0.2800

    Make sure you actually *have* a default connection applied.
    Highlight the connection and check 'Always dial my default',
    and then press 'Set Default'.

    Thats not the solution. I used to work on a internet helpdesk so I'm 99.9%
    certain it isn't a obvious setting error I need to or could change.

    Thanks anyway

    Oh, well, if you used to work on an internet helpdesk, you don't
    need any help from the lowly people in *this* group, then, eh?

    No, please don't think I was being condesending. I didn't want people to
    waste their time by suggesting basic things I've already tried 100 times.

    The New Connection Wizard Does Not Set the "Always
    Dial My Default Connection" Setting

    That seems to have fixed it. I am absolutely so grateful. I've had that
    problem for months and spent hours looking for a solution (lesson learned
    too: always check microsoft for known problems).

    Thankyou thankyou thankyou, espeially after you thought I was not being very
    grateful for your first suggestion I am so glad you continued to try to
