Hello, I cannot get Win98 to prompt for a password. I have uninstalled and re-installed the network card, Client for Microsoft Networks, and TCP/IP,Netbeui ? Any suggestions? Thank you.

Thats a different question. Usually folks want to get rid of it. Doesn't work anyways.

First be sure you have "Client for MS Networks" set as your primary logon. Click on Start>Settings>ControlPanel>Network. Now at the bottom in the box labeled "Primary Network Logon", is "Client for Microsoft Networks" selected? If not, select it.

If it was already set that way, there are a couple things that can cause it. Is Tweakui installed on that PC? If so and it's set to auto logon, that will cause it. Run Tweakui and remove the autologon settings.

The other cause can be a registry entry. Click on Start>Run, key in Regedit and press enter. Now in the Left pane, double left click on each of these.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net

Do you see an "AutoLogon" value displayed in the Right pane? If so, right click on it and select Delete. Now close Regedit.

Now delete any and all .pwl files and restart Windows.

Let us know what happens.
