Windows Passwords

I've recently reinstalled Windows 98 SE. Whenever the computer loads up, it now asks for a network password, since this is a stand-alone machine it really isn't neccesary and just slows boot-up (pressing ok, cancel or escape clears the screen and Windows continues to load). Any ideas how to remove the logon screen?

Also dial-up networking is refusing to remember my logon password. I have a feeling that I've seen something about this before, and that it related to your security settings for explorer however I can't find the details.

Any help on either issue gratefully received.

You need to go into network settings via the control panel and change from network logon to windows logon. You will have to restart the computer after. I cannot recall the procedure for dial up passwords but suspect it is to do with windows remembering passwords so security would be a start point

Thanks, not sure what I did, but dial-up has now fixed itself. Windows logon worked fine.

i think you need to right click network neighborhood and change the primary network logon from client for microsoft networks to windows logon
