Icon showing modem connection.

Win98 task bar showing I am on-line fails to ask if I want to be disconnected when I go off-line. How do I get that feature back? I frequently,because of the lack of the reminder,fail to click off. Old age and stupidity...
Thank in advance.

sorgie's comment will work for IE, if you are using Netscape then you may use this fix:
Download and run the following file:

Sorgie, I poked around prior to coming here and did not find anything. That is not to say it is not there...I could not find it. I bounced the problem off my server help desk and they did not have a clue. Rayt333 solved it. You came in a close second and I thank you both VERY much.
Regards,
