I recently reset my WinXP because I was getting a lot of virus and it affects the performance of my OS, when i was finally up and running, i lost all of the software that was provided by my dsl isp.so i went to create a new broadband connection because my dsl line doesnt have any problems. when i finaly got into the network connections window, the only icon i saw was LAN or High speed internet and went i tried creating a broadband connection it wont let me choose "create a broadband connection that requires a username and password".the icon was there before but now i dont know where it went.i am not on a router so i need that icon to connect.

By "recently reset my WinXP..." do you really mean you RE-INSTALLED it?

I'm guessing that the answer to this is yes.  You'll need to re-install your DSL software also.  You should have a CD from your DSL provider and some instructions to get this going again.  If not, you'll need to contact their SUPPORT DESK for assistance.
