    If you have TweakUI installed, you can turn this off there.

    Re: Windows 98

    Hi Ed:

    In case you don't have TweakUI (Dave's suggestion is best), go to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionPoliciesExplorer.
    Right-click in the white area of the right window and select New, DWORD Value. Name this value NoLogOff and press Enter. Then double-click this entry and enter 1 under Value. Exit RegEdit and restart Windows. Log Off User will be gone.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Windows 98

    Before tinkering with the registry make a backup.

    Open a MS-DOS box then the following
    cd
    c:
    cd windows
    attrib user.dat -s -h -r
    attrib system.dat -s -h -r
    copy *.dat *.ok
    exit

    You can use scanreg to recover a bad registry but it is cumbersome to use. With this if you ever make a mistake in the registry or a program trashes it you have a backup. Just boot in DOS, rename the old registry and copy *.ok to *.dat.

    Thanks for adding that, Paul. I should remember to add something about the backup whenever I mention editing the registry.

    Good Point. Did consider looking at registry. I always do a back-up before tinkering.

    Thanks Phil and Dave.

    Problem now fixed. Registry amend, but also downloaded TweakUI.

    Registry Backup (was Re: Windows 98)

    If you use xcopy, you don't need to change the attributes. If you picture doing this more than once, you can create a batch file for it at the DOS prompt. Starting in your Windows folder (probably c:windows):

    copy con myRegBk.bat
    xcopy system.dat system.ok /h/r
    xcopy user.dat user.ok /h/r
    ^Z pressing the F6 key inserts the control code ^Z

    Then, if you type myregbk at the c:windows prompt, it will make the copies. The second time you do it, it will ask you to confirm the overwrite.

    To restore over system.dat and user.dat, you can (carefully) reverse the process.

    Registry Backup (was Re: Windows 98)

    Hi Jefferson:

    Thanks for the information. Question, since I don't know how to write a batch file. How do you restore using a batch file?

    Thanks in advance.
