never dial a connection

System...win 98, IE 6
Whenever I set connections to always dial my default connection, it works fine UNTIL I reboot and then it says never dial a connection. Everytime the machine is restarted it reverts back to this option. Any ideas?

DUN settings are all correct.
Network = Client for MS Networks
Dial up adaptor
TCP/IP

no gateway is set or dns, it simply resets itself.

Are you remembering to click on, *Apply*, before you click OK?

Have you got any protection/security programs that may revert it? Start Page Gaurd for example checks the start page on boot up and reverts it if it's been changed.

I have clicked apply, and ok.
No startup programs seem to be unusual, just scanner programs.

Something I was wondering though. Back in the windows 3.1 days, I seem to remember you could exit windows without saving settings. Is there a flag somewhere in 98 that tells the system to exit without making any changes?

I have the same problem.Everytime it reboots it goes back to never dial a connection. Any clues please.
