Hello Experts,

Ok, I have a program installed on a Win98 PC called ACCPAC.  The program uses data that is stored on another machine.  The other PC is WinXP.  This is a new install, so it has not fully worked yet.  When she opens up the program (ACCPAC), she can get to everything just fine, but for some reason her dial up connection pops up every time she does something in the program.

Things I’ve done:
Updated the host file to reflect the IP address to remote PC name?

Any suggestions?

You could try disabling dial up connections although I do not know if this will help.  Go to start>settings>control panel.  Open up Internet options.  Click on the Connections tab.  And select the "Never dial a connection" radio button.  Only do these steps if you never connect through a dial up modem.
