Why Win 98 Password Request on Start Up?

  powertool 22:03 07 Sep 2003

I have just reinstalled Win98 and when I boot up a screen appears which I can get rid of by hitting Esc.

It is only a small irritation, but can anyone tell me how to stop it happening?!

thanks in advance!

Sorry powertool, PCA won't accept my answer to you for some reason, so I have emailed you.

use tweak ui and use auto login. It dos'nt stop it, but at least it stops buggin' you

Have you tried hitting enter without putting in a password?

Network Neighborhood and right click on it then in Primary Network Login select Windows Login, that will cure it.

Control Panel - Passwords. Click 'Change Windows password. Enter the password that you used when you installed 98 in the Old Password box and leave the other 2 blank. OK and OK.
