The fix suggested by woodchip no longer works. I cannot create a working shortcut from the IE6 .EXE file anymore.
I can create the shortcut but it is not capable of connecting to the net, message says "The page you requested cannot be loaded".
I know I don't need to bring up the Dial Up Properties window in order to connectas I proved it so why does it do it ?
My ISP/Modem and software supplier are no help.
