The control panel "PPP" could not be opened because an error of type -50 occured

When I click on my internet dialer, the error messeage [The control panel "PPP" could not be opened because an error of type -50 occured] pops up. I can click on Netscape and auto dial. Why can't I use my dialer? What does this error message mean and how do I fix it?

It sounds like you have one of those "If you run norton it will go away" problems. So run norton. If norton doesnt fix it then:

1)trash your PPP prefs
2)Trash your finder prefs
3)as a last resort remove all PPP items and reinstall just the open transport/ppp items from your system disk.

Did the Norton Scan. It found an error but didn't fix. Where  do I find PPP Prefs and finder prefs?

The PPP prefs and finder prefs are inside your Preferences folder which sits inside your System Folder.

Hmmm...thats bad...heh...You need a new copy of your PPP control panel. Thats an easy install off your system disks or you can get it off apples ftp site. Make sure you get the most recent version.
