Here's an article from microsoft about your issue:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q148925

The solution is to create a password for your user account in order to initialize the password database. After you have it created, you can use your dial-up, save the password, and you should be set. After that you can go ahead and change your password back to nothing if that's what you prefer.

To create a password for your account do this: Start> Settings> Control Panel> User Accounts> Chose an account to change and create a password for it. That should do it.

Additionally, if your dial-up account is showing a lot of **** (beyond your password length) this is just a masking feature, your password is there ok, just hit connect.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
