Windows 98 asks for a username and password before allowing access to the computer, however it is ridiculously easy to bypass it. Win95 and 98 are the least secure versions of Windows. If you want real security, you have to upgrade to Win2000 or WinXP or use a third party program such as Syslock, available here:

Not a scripted feature as such and the ability for auto log out would mean shuttingthe PC down!

But.. the way to do something similar is to enable a main password and/or multiple users in the Control Panel Applet and to enable a password on a oneof the screen savers (set to come on after 10 mins).

you can bypass the startup logon completely with xteq-setup ( much better than tweakui ) uncheck the password protect box in the screensaver window

I wanted a script to force user to logon with an ID and password before able to use the computer running Windows 98.

Can this be done by changing the registry of the computer?

ok after a bleary eyed brain f&%T yes the easiest way is in your bios set supervisor password it's a dos level password that cannot be bypassed like the joke one in win. 98 so don't forget it because in order to bypass it you must clear your cmos settings ( remove the battery ) and some cannot be remove without a soldering gun there are many programs for this but as yet i haven't found one that i couldn't bypass so do that and set the screensaver password and your set. hope that does it for you this time.

Try using the policy editor and set policies based on users logon. It would be better with groups as opposed to individual users. Allow access to program based on the policy set. If a user do not login then leave them with very little access rights.
