Login Box for Dialup exists by every starting WIN98

Every time I start Win98 the normal login box appears. After 10 seconds waiting, another login box from the Dialup adapter apears.

My question is, how can I stop the second login box. It should appear only if I click to the internet explorer or the network, but not at the start from Win98

Thanks a lot for helping.

Wan,

  Actually, i might of misread your question.  You get a dialup network box before logon, not after?  If so, my suggestion applies to the after logon.  Please reject the answer.

Had you installed Visual InterDev 6.0 March Pre-Release or is it still installed.
In that case it is a known problem. To correct this (in these circumstances), you may have to reinstall or delete and then install Windows 98.
If this solves your problem tell me and I will add this as an answer.

If you fit that, i.e., I got your problem correctly, you may want to award the
points to me. Also Microsoft in a private E-Mail to the beta testers, has stressed that they may *first* reinstall windows and if that does not work delete everything and then install windows.
I am afraid there is no key you can modify. Atleast Microsoft is
not aware of any because this is the solution they offered to those who had this problem.

The uninstall of Visual Studio 98 helps. After that the dialup login box doesn't appear if I boot win98.

Thanks for the good answer
