    Windows 98 use to ask me to log on for my user name and password now it by passes it and sends me right to the default desktop. To log on and get the right profile I would have to click on the start menu and click Log off…
    Then the Windows98 log on screen comes up where I can input my name and password.

    How do I get the log on screen to ask me to log on the first time I start Windows?

      1. Find for any “*.PWL” files and rename them to “*.WLP”
      2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
      3. Double-click Passwords
      4. Click on User Profiles
      5. Select “Users can customise ….” OK

      In the same Control Panel:
      6. Double-click Network.
      7. Add any client network components, such as Client for Microsoft Networks or Client for NetWare Networks, and then click OK.
      Restart the computer and here you go.

      This is a common problem. There is a setting in the registry called autologon. It is probably set to 1 and should be 0. Such as autologin=0. I don’t remember the exact registry key because I usually just do a F3 in regedit to find the autologon keyword. I have solved this problem dozens of times with this method. Good Luck!

      While #1 is good advice, I’m with #2 to solve this specific problem..

      Delete the following entry in the following registry key:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net

      AutoLogon=xx

      Have you tried Control Panel/Users?

      I like number 2 as well but if you just add a client to your Network Neighborhood that would do the trick.
