When I first open Internet Explorer a message pops up saying that an Internet connection is not available, and then gives me the option of working offline or trying again. When I click 'Try Again' the internet pops right up. This message only occurs when I open IE the first time anytime after that it works fine. I am running Windows 98SE, IE 5 on a DSL LAN.

I had that same problem recently on a PC running W98, IE 5.01 and a cable connection. It drove me crazy for days and I tried everything to fix it without success. As a last resort I tried upgrading to IE 5.5 SP2 and the problem disappeared. See if that helps you. You can get IE 5.5 SP2 here

Let us know what happens.

Thanks for the help, upgrading to IE 5.5 has now eliminated the error message. Computer seems to boot up slower but I can live with that. Appreciate the advice
