Have to reboot twice

By twest ·
I have several Windows 98 machines in my office that requires two reboots before logging onto the network. When the user reboots the system the first time, they do not get an option to logon to the domain. They have to logon to the local computer,then reboot again. After the second reboot, they are then prompted for their domain user id, and password. How can I fix this?

Run a search for *.pwl and delete the results.

Next, obtain the latest drivers for your Nic and uninstall everything in the Network applet and reboot the machine. After you've rebooted, reinstall only the necessary protocols and services on the machine. Reboot again and then install all of the necessary patches and updates for your computer on Microsoft's site by running Windows update from IE 4 or 5.

You'll have to reboot again, but your problem should be okay at this point.

Good Luck!

Are you on a p2p or Server Network? In network properties, make sure that in client for microsoft networks, there is a check mark next to log on to NT domain and enter your domain. Also, get rid of family logon and any other clients that you do not need. Getting rid of all *.pwl files in the windows directory and then selecting no password at the next boot is a great idea. Hope this helps.

using regedit go to "My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" key. In that key delete all values.

After you reboot, you problem will be solved.

good luck
