"the person who posted that info" would be me.

The ZIP file contains three files:
URL.DLL - If you don't already have a URL.DLL file in your \windows or \windows\system directory, copy it to \windows\system.  Do *not* overwrite an existing one.
AUTODIAL.REG - This file enters the required info into the registry.  Double-click it.
DOWNLOAD.TXT - Blah blah blah...  Delete it.

That's all.  A reboot may be needed.

Hi, I finally did install that .reg file. Now, WIndows loads dialer automatically, but it doesn't unload WInsock on a request? iS that the way it should be?
Thanks,
Victor
