New operating system

  1. When you start from scratch and install windows os and then try to
    install the internet connection the os insists on dialing out to check
    for a list of internet providers.

    This is annoying

    Is there a way of avoiding this step

    I have installed every version of Windows from Windows 3.11 through Windows
    ME, NT4, and 2000 Pro and Server, and upon setting up a net connection I
    have /never/ been prompted to dial up and get a list of providers.

    If you're using Win98, don't click on one of the links in the "On-line
    Services" folder.
    Use the "Connect to the Internet" Icon instead, of just fire up Internet
    Explorer and follow the connection wizard.
