The MindSpring Install moves all of your old configurations to a folder titled "MindSpring Back Up", and your computer is now configured to dial into MindSpring. This folder saves your old configurations. You may also need to check your TCP/IP and PPP connections and note whether your original settings have been changed. If they have, you should be able to find your old configurations in the MindSpring Back Up folder.
Your TCP/IP settings can be found in the TCP/IP Control Panel located in your system folder. Simply make a copy of the control panel in order to make a backup. Depending on what version of PPP you have, your PPP connection may be in the form of a Control Panel or small application. You can locate it by performing a search for "PPP" and making a backup (same as above, by making a copy) of any PPP items found.
Once you have installed the MindSpring soft ware, you can call 1.888.MSPRING for any technical support questions you may have.
