Who rembers OE5/6 in 95/98 and getting that dratted windowwcome asking you to give the password- when you have it in all along- and when you clear the box and type it again- what do you get? - yup that dratted window asking for that pass word in an endless loop

How did we get out of it ?
I have forgotten, and one of my flock has it on her
95 machine.

Find a file called *.pwl where * is a wildcard entry.

Delete it and reboot the machine; that looses all pawwords and they can be recreated.

Try deleting the account and re-creating it, remembering some ISP's (BT in particular) require authentication to be set in the account properties.

She hasnt come back so she has crtacked it or is totally bamboozlled. I wonder which?
