    Thank you for all those who made the latest suggestions regarding
    solving my problem. In the end, 'cos I decided to take the easy way
    out, I completely reinstalled Windows 2000 Professional; downloaded
    and applied all the updates, and, much to my delight, when I went to
    establish a New Connection, it worked :)

    And for Dianthus Mimulus. My operating system of choice is RISC OS.
    I use Windows solely because there is no decent genealogy programme
    for RISC OS. Over the last eighteen months or so I have learnt a
    little about Windows - enough to set up an Internet Connection, using
    the Wizard - which is why I was surprised that things went wrong on
    this occasion.

    And just to add to the mix, I am presently teaching myself to use SuSE
    10.1. Gotta keep my geriatric brain active, yer know :)

  3. Cool! Wasn't there a recent update released for that OS?

    Restarts often sort out many M$ Windows problems. Reinstalls sort out many
    others. That's the Microsoft way. :eek:)

    You may want to upgrade that to SuSE 10.2 - it is much improved over 10.1
    and is without the major bugs that plagued 10.1 . SuSE 10.2 is very nice
    indeed. :eek:)
