Can't get rid of windows ME pop up password window. I recently re-installed windows ME. When installing I was prompted to enter windows password. I did. I now found out that it can be easily by-passed simply by clicking cancel. I don't want it there anymore, but I can't find a way to get rid of it. I have gone to control panel>passwords. That is where the previous version had the option to enter a blank password to get rid of the pop up window. That is also where the windows HELP program told me to go, however the option is not there. I have also gone to control panel>network and changed it to windows login hoping that woud help. It didn't. ANY IDEA'S??? (It's not a big thing, just very annoying...) I'd appreciate any help. Thanks...

Hi There!

What you will need to do is:

Search for Files named "*.PWL" and delete all of them.
reboot the PC and windows will prompt for name and password-Leave the password field blank.
reboot again and reset "Windows Login" as primary login in your Network Properties.

Reboot one more time and it should now load right to the desktop!


Good Luck!
