    At opening, I get a log on window requesting a password. I click OK and the process resume, but it is a waist of time. How can I cancel this step?

    Hi and welcome to TSG!

    Firstly we will need some more information before we can help you diagnose and fix your problem.
    At opening of what? Do you mean when windows boots?
    Do you mean like the Win2K logon screen (disregarding the windows 2000 title header) --> [​IMG]

    If I am correct in thinking this then you can disable this and enable automatic logon very easily.

    1. At a command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts
    2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then
    3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be

    Hope this helps, If i have got the wrong idea, let me know and i will endevour to help futher ;)

    Kind Regards
