How do you get rid of the dropdown box that opens & asks for a password, when you start windows ME ?

Do you want it to be so that every time you start the comuter it automatically starts windows without a password?

Click Start - Run, type in REGEDIT, then click OK.

Click the + in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Microsoft - Windows - CurrentVersion - Network.

Click directly on Real Mode Net to expose its entries in the right pane.

Right-click an empty space in the right pane, then click New - Binary Value.

Type in AutoLogon, then press the Enter key.

Right-click this new entry, then click Modify.

Type in 00 00 00 00 (all zeros), then click OK.

(Note: If the AutoLogon entry is already present, right-click it, click Modify, change the value to 00 00 00 00, then click OK)

Close the registry, then reboot.

The log-in box should no longer appear.

(Note: This works for both 98SE and ME)
