Won't prompt for administrative password

By f-178765 ·
I am running Win2k Svpk IV. My computer logs on without prompting me for my administrative password. Problem seemed to occur after a failed attempt at a parallel install.

I have attempted to remedy the problem by changing settings in "users and passwords", a field found in control panel, but to no avail.
I clicked on "advanced" fields twice and tried to set the password, but to no avail. Is there another command or control that I should be taking a look at?

you want that you must enter a user name and password to log on?

In the control panel, open up administrative tools. Local security Policy, security settings. Interactive log on. Disable do not require CTL+ALT+DEL, next Disable remember last user name. This is the classic log on requirement.

The "Do not Display Last user name" is usually right above the Do not require CTL+ALT+DEL.

control panel, administrative tools, local security policy, securith settings, interactive log on Do not Display last user name. Enable it.

I am having trouble locating the "disable remember last user name". Can you give me a little more information as to where to find this? I was able to locate the "disable Ctl+Alt+Del". Apparently the option was not set.

Did you ever set the administrator password? Try loging in as Administrator, hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Change Password. Leave the current password filed blank, and enter a password.

If you never set a password, there isn't one, so it wont prompt you for one.
