I've installed some freeware dialup program, it worked, but didn't dial automatically when MSIE4.0 started. So I deinstalled that program, but built-in windows98 dial-up program stopped dialing too. When IE started it onsy says "I can not open site www.microsoft.com". What should I correct in the Registry (or somewhere else) to fix this problem ?

Go into the IE4 File menu and make sure that 'Work Offline' is NOT checked. If it is then uncheck it. This should work.

That is one solution.  You should also go into "View... Internet Options...Connection...Connection" and make sure you have the "Connect to the Internet using a modem" checked.  This will cause the IE browser to load the Dialup networking proram and dial.

Of course 'Work Offline' is NOT checked and "Connect to the Internet using a modem" IS checked. Everything was OK until I installed and uninstalled freeware dial-up program.

If you're saying IE4 doesn't dial automatically, try this:
HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Internet Settings Set the Value to:  EnableAutodial 01 00 00 00

Let me know if this is what you're looking for.

It is possible that IE4 is not your standard browser (In case if you have an other browser installed. e.g. Netscape ) Only the standard browser will be able to use the dial-up program.
Try this :
go to your configuration screen ( start -> settings ->control panel )
double click on Internet.
go to the program's tab.
At the bottom you will see a check box to check if IE4 is your standard browser.
If you mark this box and you start IE4 you will get a window where you can choose to make IE4 your standard browser or not ( this is only in case that a browser other than IE4 is marked as standard)

Thanks to larber for his answer.
And my apologize to MasseyM - he was right too. But how can I give points for comment ?
