i'm currently trying to log onto my school's network, and everytime i try to access my username, i get a prompt: Mprexe has performed an illegal operation (blablabla, you know the rest) and my logon sequence stops. this is very troublesome as i can't access the sever from any other username. is there a way i can keep programs from loading during my logon sequence? thanks

Hi,

Try booting in safe-mode (tap F8 button as soon as you see the "Starting Windows 9X" message....where X is either 5 or 8).

Then choose "Start Windows in Safe-mode", and let Windows load. Then do a search on the computer for all files ending with a .pwl extension. To do this, just type in the following for your search parameters:

*.pwl

Then delete all .pwl files that are found and reboot. If that doesn't solve the problem, then boot into safe mode again, then delete any network printers that you have installed. Then reboot, it should be fixed.

If it STILL doesn't work....then check out these links for more possible fixes:

well, the problem with that being that the username data is stored on our main server, and if i boot in safe mode, i dont have access to those files.

Hi,

No, a pwl file is stored locally on your machine and is created by Windows to be used with individual profiles. Just do a search on your local drive for *.pwl, and delete every file you find.
