Hello good people. A few days ago my browser stopped connecting to online sites. I thought I had a connection problem, so I made another Broadband connection #2. Soon afterward I found out my internet was out due to an outside cable company problem

 

I then started getting connection pop-ups asking me to connect to the Broadband connection #2, even though the original connection was working just fine. The pop-ups became very obnoxious, so I deleted the Broadband connection #2. This mostly happened while using Internet Explorer, & using Firefox wasn't effected

 

Soon after that, while using Firefox, & after connecting to sites, a new pop-up would come up, asking me something like "Connect Broadband Connection", or something to that effect, & I suddenly couldn't connect to any sites anymore. I had to reboot in order to use Firefox & connect. This has happened now for a few days. After awhile of connecting, the pop-up would show & the connections would stop

 

I must say I can still use Internet Explorer & connect, so it seems to be a Firefox problem. It seems it's reversed itself on the browsers this time around

 

The Broadband connection #2 is still gone when I open my Control Panel. Anyone know what's going on or have a solution?

 

Thank you in advance

Press Windows+R key and type

 

inetcpl.cpl and click ok

 

Click on Connections tab and checkmark Never dial a connection

 

click ok

 

Let me know if that helps

Hi BC

 

OK, I did what you advised, & I'll see if that works this evening. Also, lo & behold, the Broadband Connection #2 showed up in that box, which I deleted again

 

I'll report tonight. Thank you for your help

I forgot to mention, after deleting the Connection #2 & checking "never use dial-up", Firefox, which wasn't connecting, connected again, without rebooting. Hopefully that's a good sign

BC, well, that seemed to do the trick. No more pop-ups about connections, & both browsers seem to be running normally. If anything else "pops-up", I'll post again

 

Thank you so much. You guys are truly appreciated
