1st check your computer icon, double click it and double click
Dial-up networking. See that you only have 1 of the Dun icon set up.
2nd.

More enrties than these indicate multiples.
Also Search 'Dial-up networking" you should have 4 entries in [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\
----
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{992CFFA0-F557-101A-88EC-00DD010CCC48}]

if this is confusing get back to me.
The answer if you have multiples would be to remove your old DUN and make a new one
