I have a customers PC and when I try to create a dial-up connection I get an error when typing in a name for the connection.

error:

"connectname" is not a valid name. The entry name must contain at least one character that is not a space and connot beging witha preiod. Choose a different name.

I have tried the default name that is creted, and I have tried several others all result in the same message. I have scanned for viruses as well as spyware/adware. Any thoughts on the cause of this?

Thanks
