    Hi,

    Everytime I turn my computer on I have to supply a network password and then I am prompted to "please confirm password you entered. This will be used as your windows password. Confirm new password" ? What is causing this to appear everytime I boot up. Before I was only asked for a network PW only. I have a windows 98 SE PC.

    What do I have to do to solve this issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Create a "new" username, and leave the password field BLANK. Then Click on OK.

    You are probably going to have to search for *pwl files and delete what you find.
