Double dial up in Eudora and Netscape

Every time I log on to my ISP using Eudora Light or Netscape i see the initial dial up screen with the option to cancel or connect. If I select cancel, the same screen is present behind the first, and I can press connect. If I connect on the first screen the second is then present when I log off. This does not happen with IE4 installed as part of Win98. This also did not happen before I upgraded to Win98. It seems as if DUN is being activated twice by Eudora and Netscape. I have reinstalled Eudora twice and set up another Dial up connection in DUN. It was just the same.

The problem is not in Netscape or Eudora.
The DUN is automated by a request for an IP and is made by RNAPP.

1st step, rename all *.PWL files at your windows directory to *.OLD or anything else.
restart windows and try again.
If the problem still exist,
Go to the Network section in the control pannel, Remove everything.
Restart windows, go back to the NETWORK and install only this 3 components:
Client for Microsoft netwok (whic will let you save password) By ADD CLIENT
Dial UP adapter (from the ADD Adapter, Manufacturer Microsoft)
and TCP/IP (from ADD protocol, Manufacturer MICROSOT)
Remove everything ELSE if installed.
Change the Primary LOGON to WINDOWS LOGON
restart.

Thanks for your reply. As my computer is part of a peer to peer network I am reluctant to start deleting network components immediately. I have tried your first idea with the password files and that did not work. I will try out the rest of the fix next week after I have completed my month end accounts. I intended to reinstall the whole shebang anyway in order to clear out a few cans of worms resultant from installing Win98 over Win95/IE4. Will let you know next week.

Hi
Sorry to be so long coming back to you. I am only just net enabled again after a full reformat etc. I was never able to cure the problem wit your answer but to be honest I did not persevere too hard as I was prepared to reformat etc. Any way the problem went so I accept your answer and release the 200 points.
