    I did it. In Windows XP, when I couldn't connect to the Net, I went into Network Connections and fussed around with the two Local Area Connections that I have, and now every time I boot up my computer it asks for a password. Even though I have always left it blank, it still asks for a password every time. What do I check or uncheck to get it to stop asking for a password?

    If it doesn't work u may have to phone ur ISP to re-set the account

    I assume you're referring to the windows logon password.
    If you're the administrator go to control panel then User Accounts
    Select the user you want to modify.
    Then select remove my password.
    If you're not the adminstrator then sign on as administrator to make the change.
