    Default Should be DON'T Remember Password

    Can some kind soul tell me how to make a windows98 pc default to NOT remembering passwords to shared drives etc on a LAN?
    I want to make users enter the password for our secure server drive each time they logon, but good old windows always defaults to ticking the "remember this password" - so it's a constant struggle to remember to uncheck this!
    Any hacks or utilities to fix this?
    Thanks.

    David,

    Before you start remember to always backup the Registry before playing.

    Then run REGEDIT and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENT VERSION/POLICIES/NETWORK/DISABLE PWD CACHEING=0.

    My notes aren't clear but I'm sure all you need to do is change the 0 to 1.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Granville,
    Unfortunately I have no such entry in my Network registry key??
    Don't suppose you'd be so kind as to export & email me a copy of yours so I know what else is meant to be there?
    Thanks heaps.
