after changing to broadband?
I got my friends pc setup for broadband and went and selected "don't dial a connection" in both Internet Ex and Outlook Express.
On opening IE,web pages load ok, but on opening Outlook Express,up pops the dial up box.Is there another way to stop that happening,have I missed some other setting?
