View Full Version : How do I remove the internet dial up messages?

27-06-2009, 10:31 AM
I'm now on broadband by when I open Outlook Express I still get asked if I want to go online; the dial up messages. How do I remove these? I presume it's one of the options in Tools/internet options/connections.

Read this (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=100847) thread from the other day.

I've looked at both options suggested in the thread
I've gone to Tools/Accounts/Properties/Connections and there was no tick in the box ""Always connect to this account using".

I've gone to Control Panel>Internet Options>Connections (tab) and found the "Never Dial A Connection" option was already selected.

It's still happening. Any other ideas?

What exactly are you getting coming up, is it a dialup box or is it just asking if you want to go online.
Check under File and make sure Work Offline is not ticked.

Go into Control Panel.
Network Connections.
Delete the dialup connection.

I've just done this as linked by stormdragon's post. In OE under tools have a good look around and remove all trace of dial-up. Safari's post was great but dial-up also appearred in other places under tools/accounts/properties. Depends on the version most probably.

Done that pctek. It's got rid of one of the pop ups but the other one is still there.

When I click on send/receive in OE a small dox appears saying Dial up Connection. Select the service you wish to conect to. Three options, connect, settings and cancel.

If you deleted the diapup connection itself, then changed the default connection in OEs Accounts to LAN then it shoulkdn't.

Perhaps you have a dialer virus?

Open OE, then go to Tools/Options/Connection tab and make sure there are no check marks on the Dial-up section. If there are, uncheck both of them, click apply & OK
