    Hello All,

    I have an older Dell that I got from some 1. When I boot this PC up......this window comes up with the person's name and a "blank" pass-word".some thing like logging on to Micrsoft Network. (there is no network that I know of) Is there any way to disable this.

    Basically, I want 98se with-out any pass word !!!!


    Any suggestions ??

    dr911,

    Do you know how to use the Find function ???

    Start button > Find > File or folder

    When you get to search C:\> drive "enter" the following

    *.pwl

    This will show the passwords now installed -- "Delete" ALL that you find.

    NEXT TIME you boot up just hit the <Enter> key -- DO NOT enter any "new" passwords.

    IF you get this far. post back for one more step. [Change to "Windows Logon"]

    dr911,

    The final step is:

    Open the "Control Center" and click on the "Network" icon.

    In the center of the window that opens is a small window labeled "Primary Network Logon".

    If necessary, change this to "Windows Logon", Windows should now boot up directly to the desktop.
