    Go to ControlPanel>Network
    Choose Windows Logon as Primary Login

    Open system.ini
    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,
