    why does my Internet Explorer keep defaulting to work offline??

    Hi guys.

    The last couple of days I have picked up something very annoying and wondering if any of you guys could throw some light on it or point me in the right direction.

    Basically whats happening is my Internet Explorer keeps defaulting to work offline everytime I start a web browser. Any ideas on what could be causing this or where to look to fix the problem? I know it's nothing major, just very annoying everytime I start a web browser I have to go to internet options on deselect the work offline tab.

    Are you using outlook express to check your email? There's an option to disconnect after send / receive, could be having a nock on effect to IE.exe. (Just a wild guess, other than ensuring the connections tab within ie are all correct).

    Try this:

    Go into tools > internet options > connections tab > and make sure the option that says "never dial a connection" is selected.
