Outlook Express and DUN

By gemailhiot ·
Computer is 400 Mhz, 60 MB RAM machine running Windows 98SE.
for Internet Explorer 5 and 6, the DUN dialog box appears as soon as the program loads.
For Outlook Express 5 & 6, it takes approximately 3 minutes for the DUN dialog to show up.
No program has been added or deleted from this computer before the problem started appearing a couple of weeks ago.
There was no anti-virus program installed before the problem. One has been installed since and no virus was found.

Any idea as to what may be causing this delay in loading Dial-up networking dialog. The modem is a 56K modem, internal.

Have tried to unisntall and re-install DUN - no change. have created other dial-up connections, no change.

Any ideas?

Which version of DUN are you using?

There is an update to version 1.4 posted on Microsoft's download area.
There are 2 versions for W98. One for the original and one for W98SE.

Next, what happens if you click on send and receive as soon as OE opens?
Does it still take a while for DUN to pop up?

Next, check your option and preference settings in OE.
Is OE set to automatically send and receive messages at startup?
(For security purposes, I recommend against this setting.)
Is OE set to automatically connect when a connection is not present?
