IE question?  What is a RAS connection?  It may be related to an difficult IE issue?

File & Settings Transfer Wizard is a handy program to transfer OR stuff, Favorites, Address Book, Desktop from an old PC to a new one.

I ran it and it worked.  However it gave me a message saying:
"Could not restore some of your settings"

The it mentioned:
RAS Connections
AT & T WorldNet Service

Does anyone know what this means?  I have been having a LOT of problems with this new machine and I suspect it could be related to this somehow.  The problem: IE just stops working.  It is working now, but when I first tried IE, I saw a long / disturbing "Detecting Proxy Settings".  This is a stand-alone computer.  It is not even part of it's workgroup yet.

Any info?  Any experience / knowledge of this?
