I have recently reloaded Win95 and lost alot of my settings. Before i did this Whenever I launched Internet Explorer 4.0 the Dial Up Networking would automatically dial. I would not even have to click on Connect. How do I get this back?

Open up your Regedit.exe and look under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS

There should be a binary name 'AutoConnect' modify it to '01 00 00 00' and there also should be a binary name 'EnableAutodial' also modify it to '01 00 00 00' and exit.

Under your Internet Properties>Connection, make sure you've checked 'Connect to the Internet using a modem' and click on 'Settings' to select the ISP.  (This is assuming you're using dial up modem.)

Highlight/click on the 'INTERNET SETTINGS' and the binary/keys will appear on the right pane.

You have to have "Client for Microsoft Networkworks" installed.
This will create a profile for you and remember your password.
In IE 4.0 go to View>Options> and select "Connect as needed"
That's it.

As much as posible you should try to avoid having to touch your regeistry. Go to My Computer->Dial Up Networkin->Connections settings The prompt for info... should not be ticked, also go to control panel-> Internet->Conection tab->Connect to the Internet box should be ticked and you should be able to select you connection on the "Use one of the Followiing connection" field. If there are field that you couln't find you might have to get the latest version of Dial Up Networking if you don't have it already.
