    After installing IE7 beta 2 and restarting, the Dial-up Connection dialog for
    my PPPoE connection appears then disappears every few seconds. It interrupts
    everything I do.

  2. I noticed the same problem. I just set the connection to "never dial" in the
    Options Dialog, and so now have to dial manually.

    I found exactly the same. Even though I am on broadband the dial-up box
    kept appearing whenever IE had to download a piece of information.
    Disabling Zone Alarm etc didn't help. In the end I had to uninstall the

    After uninstalling and rebooting I found that my I could not connect to my
    ISP at all by broadband or dial-up.

    I had to do a system restore to a point I had made before installing the
    beta to eventually get back to normality.

    Uninstalling fixed it for me. I was also having some problems with a POP3
    checker and a tray weather app. Both are working properly again.

    I am having the same problem too.

    But that never dial connection fix is only temporary.

    I am after some feedback from Microsoft that this is beingworked on and will
    be fixed in the next release.

    Surely this was picked up in beta 1? or do all those select beta 1 people
    not use any form of PPP, PPTP, or PPPoE?

    I was using beta one for a few months now and never had this problem,
    installed beta 2 lastnight and had 'connect to...' dialog at least once per
    web page, this morning couldnt even get connected?

    think i'll go back to 6 for banking websites etc and start using firefox /
    opera again. Oh well beta 2 look a lot nicer than 1 but i can't stand the
    continuous popups

    I had a work-around for this problem:
    Internet Options->Connections->Never dial a connection

    But the problem is:
    Always have to manually connect my PC to net
    Every 2-10 Websites the IE beta 2 prev. thinks I am offline. Opera & Co.
    have no problems.

    Using IE6 I never had to do anything but open and click connect to go on the

    Using IE7 I have to click connect, then a second box pops up to dial before
    being able to get on the net. Not a serious deal but annoying none the less.
    Microsoft so far has not been able to figure it out either. They told me this
    is the first they have heard about it. I am now working with the Research and
    Development Team with not very good resulte either. They are telling me that
    I am the only one who has compained about this problem.

    Funny thing is last night I searched blogs and found one on another
    on and tohers in different places. So no Microsoft I am not alone

    So who do I believe. I think maybe this program was released too soon.
    Anyone else have this problem?

    Another thing it after opening Outlook Express a disconnet box comes up as
    I use auto disconnect on my machine. Seems this new IE7 does not share the
    same footprint as Outlook Express anylonger is this true?

    Thanks for your

    Can confirm you are not alone. I to have similar problems with IE7. After
    installing IE7 (version 7.0.5730.11) via Windows Update, I too got the same
    response when IE7 was first opened. It first opened the dial-up dialog then
    opened a second dialup dialog that I only see if I manually dial a dial-up
    network connection. Annoying but tolerable, I thought. Then I opened Outlook
    Express ... It became unresponsive and I closed it - sent an error report.
    Closed IE7 and it suffered a program error. It didn't produce an error
    report. Shut down and restarted, after starting shutting down IE7 DID produce
    an error report! But too late, system shut down before it was sent.
    Restarted. Opened Outlook Express first this time and it purged and rebuilt
    my hotmail Inbox. Restarted IE7. Then my dial-up connection was disconnected
    by my ISP due to lack of activity. Both IE7 and Outlook Express did not
    recognise the network connection had been dropped and did not redial it
    (unlike used to happen). Had to close both applications as they became
    unresponsive. Reopend both applications and they did not pop the dial-up
    dialog, but became unresponsive. Now I have to dial my dial-up connection
    manually, or both IE7 and Outlook Express become unresponsive. If my dial-up
    connection is disconnected I have to close IE7 and Outlook Express down
    because the dial-up connection won't connect when IE7 and Outlook Express are
