logging in

By sister-Inlaw ·
I'd like to log in a win98 machine locally. Upon boot it currently comes up with a login to the domain . Is there a way to bypass this?. - or does the network prefs need reconfiguration after logging into the domain as admin?.

Normally Windows 98 machines don't have profiles so if you were to cancel at the log in window it would be like logging on locally as no login scripts would run. It the system admin has created a logon rule that you must successfully authenicate tologon then the admin will have to remove that policy setting.

As long as you are the only user, and you don't want more than one choice of settings at startup, go into the Windows directory and delete all files with a .pwl extension (or go to TOOLS, FIND,FILES or FOLDERS, then type in *.pwl making sure to search from the C: and include sub-folders -you can delete it/them from the find/search window) and then reboot. You can then leave the password blank and choose OK on reboot and you won't get the password dialog box again.

If you can get access to the registry (either remove the NIC next time it boots or another method) Do a search for a registry key called MustValidate (or something similar) setting this to 0 will allow you to cancel through the domain login.

under Network Properties should be a pull down menu with an option for Client for Microsoft Login or something to that affect, i don't have win98 anymore to check. there are 3 or 4 options, i think that is the one you want to be using.
