    Password Problem

    My Win 98 communication software will not remember by ISP password---the box for this is grayed out when I connect. The Win98 help utility tells me the solution and directs me to change the Windows password to "nothing"---but the appropriate tab doesn't appear in the dialog box. Screenshots are attached. Help!!
    Thanks

    You need to install the Client for Microsoft Networks. Go to the Control Panel, Select Network, and then click Add - you will need to browse to the Win98 CD or the location that you installed from on your hard drive.

    This will also require a reboot, but once the Client is installed, you will be able to retain your password.

    Using your start menu, navigate to Settings / Control Panel and select the password application. In here, you can change your Windows Password. When making it a "nothing" password, make sure you don't have any characters in the New Password prompt.

    Re: Password Problem

    Chris: Thanks for the suggestion. It does work, but I had a more basic problem: the change password tab didn't appear when I opened the Passwords utility. I found the answer, though it is pretty complicated. It was at the url <A target="_blank" HREF=http://badour.freewebsites.com/html/registry.html>http://badour.freewebsites.com/html/registry.html</A>
    The cure involves the registry. That seems to be a great site for problems involving the registry. However, thanks a lot for being willing to help. Your answer was the correct one, but I needed a bit of preliminary work to do before I could use it.
    Best,
