automatic login for Win98

By jdam4921 ·
I now understand the ease of allowing winXP and 2000 to login without provideing a password... But 98 does not have the box to check in the user profile... therefore, how can i get this Win98 system to be networked and still login automatically.

I did say network.... however, this system is part of a workgroup. No Domain involved. And if I just click cancel at the login window this system can not be seen on the Workgroup or can it access the other systems on the same workgroup, however automatic login is necessary.

Hi
Read the warnings before You do any thing.

start->run->regedit
locate the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Create 3 string subkeys AutoAdminLogon and set its value "1" , DefaultPassword and set itsvalue "password", DefaultUserName and set its value "username"
Reboot.


Good luck

Mohamed

Backup your registry first.
Editing and modifying the registry could result into a serious problems that may require youto reinstall your operating system.

Remember to be extremely careful when you edit the Registry, because Registry errors can render a system unbootable. Be sure to have a current Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) before you make any of the modifications.
