Which version of Windows are you using?

Does your ISP require that you use their Software to connect?
I have seen conflicts between DUN and various ISP's propretary browser/dialer software.
If possible I would try to get down to basics. Just using the Dial up Networking 1.2 and Either IE or Netscape.
(Wasn't sure if you meant that you reinstalled the default DUN or the updated 1.2 version)

Here is the link for DUN1.2

Marotta: I am using windows 95 4.00.950 B.

cmcgee: No I don't have to use the ISP's dialer, most of the time I get the error on the DUN 1.2. I just updated this in early May, so I assume I have the most recent one. I will run Catch-Up to double-check. But when I installed the update in May, I went weeks without having this problem... it just appeared suddenly. I am concerned that maybe other software I have downloaded since then and then uninstalled might have corrupted or deleted a shared file?

Try Regclean from Microsoft available here:
