Hi there

I'm running WinXP2Home+SP2 on both my desktop and laptops.

I have relatives coming from overseas this weekend who will probably want to check emails.

So, I have set up guest account on both machines.

Problem the Connection shortcut to my ISP does not want to connect - the connect tab when right clicked is greyed out. BTW i am on dial-up.

I have checked in my admin account that the connection is available to all users and even set up another one using the connection wizard - same result.

Any ideas please?

Tony

Guest can only use the Internet if the connection is established before Guest logs on...ie, you use switch users.
