Thanks in advance!

I installed a screensaver program called d3player.exe for some screensaver called SimAuarium2, it added a file called dgina.dll to my Windows\system32 folder and then my login screen went from the XP login (with Icons for users) to the NT style screen. I found this out when I tried to change it back to the XP login in the user accounts window (I am logged in as the Administrator, this is XP home) a message came up that said dgina.dll was not letting me change the setting. Looked for the file it was in the Windows\system32 folder. I looked it up on the internet and it will somehow change how windows logs on, it is not a virus. I deleted the file and then I could not even get the login screen just a message saying that the file was missing and to restart. Unfortunatley I didn't have system restore on. So I reinstalled windows to see if I could repair the problem got things going but after logging in got the blue screen. Went into msconfig and turned off the services & the startup items found the Telephony Service was causing this so i deleted & reinstalled the modem and the network card & drivers. I can query the modem and go into hyperterminal and connect, the network card is working okay too. I can get into the system now with no blue screen but now I want to re-setup my dial-up connection. But  I can't in the window of the network connection wizard where it asks for the choice of modem or lan the modem is greyed out. I can figure out the dgina.dll problem later but would like to get my dialup working again.

Whew my fingers hurt already

Did you do a repair of windows xp or a FULL reinstall?
I once did a repair of windows and had a similar problem,  I had to follow the steps of this MS knowlede base article and it worked great after and ever since.

HKLM->System->CurrentControllSet->Services->Rasman->PPP->Eap

Left click on eap once so it becomes highlighted

Backup the key

Click file->export

put a file name in then click save

Ok, Under eap, if you see 4 more keys they should be labeled

13

4

25

26

Delete the keys labeled 25 and 26 and reboot the machine

If you do not see those keys.

then go into phone and modems in the controll panel.

Make sure you have dialing rules set up.

 I deleted the registery keys 25 & 26 and now after I login to the computer and at the desktop a window pops up saying my dialup is trying to connect to an address of 123.4.5.6 and ask me to connect. If I choose cancel the window keeps coming back up until I choose dial and connect.

  I have a screenshot of what the window looks like,  but don't know how I can get it to you.
Can I send a bitmap or put it somewhere that you can look at it?
It comes on even if I turn off all the startup items.

how did you disable startup items?  did you use msconfig or the startup folder via start?
you may have to delete any dial up connections you currently have and recreate the ones you need.
