When 95 completes loading, press ctrl-alt-del keys to see the list of programs that are running.  You can use the END TASK button to close programs.  Repeat as necessary to close all but explorer and systray.
Try dialer again.

I've seen this problem way too many times at work.The only thing that seems to work is to go to add\remove programs then windows setup then uninstall your dial-up networking and all the other communications you have checked.Your settings will return after you reboot and install them again.Then reboot again and it should clear up the problem.Remeber to put the modem back to it's original settings and let Win95 find it or tell it where it is.Then go into Modems in control panel then to diagnoistics
pick the com port your modem is on and click more info,if it talks to your modem and gives you a read out your problem should be fixed.
