I May Have Mislead You All

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Steve Pounder, Nov 29, 2003.

  1. 4-6 days ago I posted a request for help.
    I received a few replies & for this I thank you all.

    I may have phased my query incorrectly.
    I will try again.

    Due to messing about, I now have upon boot up of my computer the box
    prompting me to log on to the Internet.

    I can get out of this with closing the prog & using Esc-wife is not such an
    expert as myself :)

    I know that there is a box to untick but I cannot find it, tick on prompt is
    Win 98 se.

    Thanks again & respects

    You can either just hit escape, or uninstall the Microsoft client in your
    TCPIP properties. I don't have a Windows box handy to walk you through it
    step by step but i think it's in Start-Settings-Control Panel- Network
    Properties - Clients.

  5. Thanks.

    Still with respects to 'Mike' & that other fellow that replied.
    Been reading 'Mike' for nearly 5 years you see.

    Awww, nothing seems to work, right click on dial up connection followed by
    several escape clicks gets me out of it.

    Wife giving me stick.

    If anyone has any easy answer.

    Why don't you explain your problem more precisely.

    Well what is asking you for you to log in is most likey the Client for
    Microsoft Networks and is going to be found not in your dial up properties
    but in your modem properties. Gives a list of protocols and clients

    What do you mean by *on bootup*? Is your desktop showing?

    Look at what is in the startup > Start> Programs> StartUp.

    Is IE there? Is OE there?

    If so, just right mouse drag them to the desktop. Reboot.

    Internet Explorer
    Tools menu
    Internet Options
    tick "Never Dial a Connection"
    untick "Dial whenever a network connection is not present"

    That should fix the problem for you.
