    Hi All,

    Does anyone know how to set Windows Vista or Internet explorer to connect to
    the internet in one easy click?

    I have a new Notebook with Vista installed, & I have Speedtouch 330 modem,
    but in order to get online, I have to click "Internet explorer", & then click
    a "Connect" button, or a "Connect Automatically" tick box, which resets when
    I try & connect next time?

    I do have a shortcut on my desktop that says "Connect to my ISP", but when I
    double click this, another little box appears with a "Dial" button allowing
    me to connect, but then I have to open Internet Explorer seperately?

    There must be a setting that I am missing somewhere, because there is an
    option on one of these little boxes that I can tick to allow "All Users" with
    a Microsoft icon next to it, but I tick this & the next time I try & connect
    it has reset itself to only allowing me only, & the "All Users" box is
    un-ticked again?

    If anyone has any advice on how to resolve this, then I would be very
    grateful! I am sure there is an admin user setting that needs changing

    Many thanks.

  2. In Internet Explorer, pick Tools, then Internet Options. Make sure your ISP
    dial-up entry is in the list there, then click the radio button next to
    "Always dial my default connection". That should dial your ISP any time a
    program needs Internet access.
