When I use MS IE4, everytime I change an activity using the browser, a little sign comes up asking me if I want to disconnect from my Internet provider.  It does this even when going from one website to another, as well as when I exit IE4.  How can I eliminate this?

Do you connect to the Internet by clicking of IE and it autodials? If so, does the same thing happen if you go to "My computer">Dial-Up Networking and click on your Internet Provider, wait til it connects, then start IE? If not then the problem is in IE, there are updates available from MS, and maybe they will help.

I do not use the autodial feature of IE, but click on my Internet Provider icon to connect.

Make sure you do not have IE 5 beta on. Go to Help, and about IE, and tell me the version number.

bmilne, try this, but please follow the entire procedure.

1. Log onto the internet as you normally do.
2. Open IE 4.0 and let it fully open to its home page.
3. Click "View" then "Internet Options"
4. Click the "Connection" tab and make sure that you have selected "Connect to the Internet using a modem".
5. Next, click the settings button.
6. In the top window in "settings", make sure your Internet Service Provider for logon is listed and selected.
7. Next, at the bottom, make sure "Disconnect if idle for" is selected and make the timing 20 minutes or more.
8. Click "apply" and save your selections and close the windows, then close IE 4.0.
9. Log off or disconnect from the Internet.
10. Restart the system, now check your connection.
