Hi all
On 26 august I made a post stating that I had lost all my internet connections and could not add new ones.
I have managed to crack this. To overcome the problem all I did was to reload XP SP1.
The connections had not actually been lost but were hidden some how. I thought this was the case because when I tried to reload using my current login and password I was informed that a connection with those parameters already existed!

Never mind all's well that ends well. <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> MS! !

Thanks to SMBP for trying.
