Hi- Have you found an answer for this yet? My sister is having the same problem. It came up when NetZero Platinum ran an automatic update. She is running Windows 98.

It's their support.

You may notice that services that use such software get odd responses in these forums such as....

Q. "I have this AOL problem which is..."
A. "Call AOL support."

Q. "I have a NetZero install issue. Can you fix it?"
A. "Call NetZero since you pay for such."

The reason for such is simple. AOL/NetZero and others are what is called a walled garden. They have their own world of software and issues as well as a support database that we can't access.

If they can't resolve your issue, then you cancel your agreement and change providers.

Netzero provides a support website to help resolve common problems, look for a FAQ or support.

INHO, I think your problem lies in the "startup" of netzero. If upon orginal install you allowed netzero to startup with you bootup, and then you hit the netzero icon on desktop, you're double loading the s/w. You need only to hit the browser icon to lauch into the web. It will try to dail, etc. after hitting the broswer icon. If none of this resolves the problem, unload/delete netzero, just be sure you know your username and password. Goto the directory that netzero was on and delete *all* leftover bits. Thus, when you reload netzero again and when prompted, answer "no, for load at startup". When finished, hit the netzero icon, go through new acct., and the dail-up selection procedure setting, etc. and save them. Then connect. etc., hopefully that resolves it. That's my best guess for now. Netzero will provide phone support for a cost, should you decide that route.

good luck -----Willy
