Sorry mate,

  I need to do this myself through the registry as i'm programming it myself.

I just thought there might be a reg key that I could delete.

This is what I would do.

1. Create an exported reg file containing the only DUN you want on your machine HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\RemoteAccess\Profile\ , call it DUN.REG and put it in a folder, like c:\windows\system or c:\windows

2. Create an empty reg file of the same Key, such as DUNMT.REG. Put it in the same folder.

3. Now create two new String values in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run as follows:

DUN1
c:\windows\regedit.exe /s "c:\windows\DUNMT.reg"

DUN2
c:\windows\regedit.exe /s "c:\windows\DUN.reg".



This should do it for you.

GOOD LUCK.

To Gemarti
I am, like a few others, a bit ignorant re register entries.

I would really like to know how your suggestion to KAbbott works.

How does it stop someone else setting up a dialup connection?

Thanks

On windows startup DUN1 replaces the current profile with a blank profle. DUN2 then creates the profile that the user wants on his machine.

It doesn't stop someone from creating a dialup connection, but when they restart their machine the dialup connection they created will be deleted and the one that KAbbott wants on the machine will be the only connectiod available. It is more like a deterrant than an actual prohibative configuration. Perhaps I should have explained this in more detail.
