    I have windows 98se and I was wondering how do I get rid of the logon onto windows box, (user name, and password). It just started for some reason. I've looked all over the place for the answer. I've looked through Accel's MaxSpeed site, and regedit site without luck. If anyone has anything to say about this please get back to me. Thanks.

    Thanks for the imput, but it was set on windows logon, and not network. Either way it asks for a password and username.

    Play around with the different options anyway, it will also come up if you DO have a password (you don't always need to enter one) and could also come up if you are part of some network.

    No matter what I have done I still get the logon window. I can't get rid of it.

    should be able to do a Find for *.pwl
    Rename any logon password to .old (wily.pwl becomes wily.old)

    In the network control panel make sure that the primary network logon is set to Windows Logon.

    Reboot - when prompted for a password just click OK.

    That should do it.

    i just installed a fresh copy of win98 on my system, its part of a network/cable net connect, and i just tried all that, its still their
    i found out that if i pull out the network cable, it doesnt come up, so does that mean it'll come up with that anoying thing each time i want to login to the network, even tho i dont need it???

    * tries to remember what Windows 98 is like *

    From what I can (vaguely) remember, it's under Users in the Control Panel. Open it and deselect the option "Users must enter a User Name and Password to use this Computer" (or something like that) :?:

    Reboot and (hopefully) it should be fine :thumb:

    Yea, you either have to get rid of all network protocols, or just find a tool that will log on for you.

    Tweak UI has an option that will log you on immediatly every time you boot your computer. It is the best solution.
