I tried to use DUN for the very first time but after the number dialed and
I got the "Locating server" message, I then get an error message that says
"An essential file is missing - please re-load Dial-up networking " (or
words to that effect.) It doses not say the same of the file.

I have re-loaded Dial-up Networking twice and still get the same message.

I currently have Compuserve on my sysytem.

I contacted my PC support and they say it appears to be a problem with
Win95.

It doesn't give a hint of the name of the missing file?

What did you do in order to reload Dialup Networking?

I uninstalled DUN and Direct Dial from within WIN95 and then re-installed using "Add sofware"

It has been suggested to me that perhaps I have a Winsock problem with my Compuserve account which does not use DUN. I will be ended my Compuserve account when I get this sorted out. Any ideas?
