Dial Up Networking

Hi all.

Windows 98 SE, All Service packs and updates applied.

I create a Dial Up Network Connection to Clients ISP. The minute the client restart her pc, the dialup connection goes missing. When I try recreate the connection - Windows reckons the dialup connection already exists and wont let me create it with the same name. So each time the user restarts she creates a new differently named dialup connection, and then has to reset her outlook express etc...

Any ideas?

Did you create the connection manually or through the wizard. Not sure this will work, but try using the wizard to create a new connection. This may make Windows feel it is very important ;). As soon as the connection is created, just shut down your PC completly. System settings are saved. Switch on your computer and see if the connection still exists.
