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.

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}]

-----------AND IN [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\
THE SAME AS [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\

if this is confusing get back to me.
