    Hi bigdr_5,

    Welcome to the board!

    Try this for a start:

    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,
As Seen On
