WINME continues to ask for a logon pasword, even tho I did not set one. When starting up, it stops to show a suaser name and then asks for the password. I can either hit <ok> or the "X" in the top right and continue on. I would liek to get rid of the box altogether...any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi,

Try this for a start:

Go to ControlPanel/Network
Choose Windows Logon as Primary Login

Open system.ini, and delete all lines under
[Password Lists]

No joy?

Go to Start/Find/Files or Folders, and type *.pwl in the 'named' field.
Delete the files with the *.pwl extension that come up.

Now reboot
You should now get the login box. Type your name and password or leave the password field blank for no password

Good luck,
