    Network/User logon

    I am networked with win 98. Network logon is default with no password. CR moves on. Now it's coming up with a second "user" logon screen. I can hit cancel and all works OK. But I don't know how I got the second screen and would like to get rid of it. I am the only user.
    Any suggestions.

    Re: Network/User logon

    If you just add the network, it is a network login. You are going to need an account to access your network, so it is asking for your user account and password.

    Re: Network/User logon

    It is a home network and I have not needed a user logon ever before. I must have done something to call it. All I need is the network logon to be part of my home network. The user logon is machine specific and I DON'T want that.
    Thanks

    If this is the "User login, delete the the "PWL" file that is linked to this account. Reboot, when the login screen appears, type in the SAME account name used before, and then tab to the password area and just use the "Enter key" as your password. You now should not need a password.

    Do a search on "*.pwl" to fine all of the pwl files.

    It appears that "some one" type in a password for you or deleted the "PWL" file and then did not set it back up the same way as you had it before.
