You do not need their installation software. All you need is a username and password, and a phone number.
Uninstall their junk, then use XP to set up the dial up connection. Dial in, enter your username and password, and connect to any page you want.

Long story short, I chose Netzero for my ISP. I cannot get any DSL
locally and the local provider charges $19.95 for dial up or DSL.
I chose Netzero for price and I hoped some speed. Anyone help with
the following. I installed the Netzero using their provided CD.
1. Why can't I set up my dial up using the Windows set up. I use the
phone numbers (local for me) provided by Netzero but I can never get
2. I can only get a connection when I use the dial up provided by
Netzero. That dial up sends me to their home page which has news,
weather, ads, ads, etc, etc. and that takes time. I have google
set as my home page but it will only go there after I allow Netzero
home page to load and then change to my home.
3. When I'm ready to disconect the usually toolbar connection status
icon in Windows is not available(I checked several times in set up to
show this icon). I have to disconnect using the dial up window that
Netzetro installed. After I click on disconnect it takes quite a while
to disconnect and I finally have to right click on their icon in the tool bar and choose close.
Any way to get my dial up to go straight to my home page and not Netzeros or get my Window XP dial up set up to work?
