Some time ago, I had the need to setup a dialup connection on my computer running Windows 7 to connect to the Internet. Well, the need was for a couple of days. However, ever since then, I have been bugged by a popup dialog from this connection asking me to connect whenever my computer was having trouble finding the Internet. This was getting bothersome, and I looked and looked for how to go and delete this. It used to be pretty straight forward in Windows XP to delete this, as I could go and see a list of all Network Connections in the Control Panel.
But in Win 7, I just can’t find that setting in the Control Panel, under the Network and Internet option (as you can see below):
So, what do I do? I didn’t know what to do and was getting very irritated day by day. Then I just tried doing one thing: I pressed the start key, and typed “Network Connections”, and voila, what do I see on top of the list? Here, see for yourself:
Well, then it was a matter of clicking “View Network Connections”, and then deleting the dial up connection from the window which shows up. Phew, no more pop-ups.
