I have resently lost the auto-dial up feature on my PC, so now none of the the internet related programs can connect (eg Norton update, Windows update, Netscape etc) without me first having to manually use the dial out box. Is there a way to restore this feature?
Also I and another XP pro user have found that all programs open with a minimised windows after start up, anyone got a fix for that?

regards Peter.

Check the following...

Open My Computer, Dial-up-Networking, Connections, Settings, and select Don't Prompt to use Dial-Up Networking, or...

Go Start | Settings | Control Panel | Internet Options | Connections | Select "Always Dial my Defualt Connection"

Oops - don't know for sure if the above is the same for XP
