    booting up

    Help! <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> When I turn my computer on in the morning (or any other time, I get a message saying to "Enter your network password for Microsoft Networking". I don't have MS Networking, never did, and don't want it now. How do I get this window to stop coming up? I have to close it each time now in order to finish booting up. Thanx!!!

    To get rid of the dialog, right-click on Network Neighborhood (or go into Start -- Settings -- Network and on the dialog that appears, change your Primary Network Logon to Windows Logon. You will be prompted to reboot, but you don't need to. On the next restart, you should get a prompt for a password - just press enter and you will never see a logon box again.

    Mark, I don't get a choice on Primary Network Logon. Any other suggestions?

    Find all the *.pwl files in your C:Windows folder, and delete them.

    On your next reboot, it will ask for a username and password. Enter whatever you wish for the username, but leave the password blank. This should resolve your problem.

    Or you can right-click on Network Neighborhood, click properties in the pop-up menu, and then remove the Client for Microsoft Networks. You would then be asked to restart, and that should take care of the Microsoft Networking logon prompt.
