Login Password

By ajg ·
I am have a Windows 98 / 2nd Edition computer that starts up without requiring a login. As a result cannot access and network resources (Windows 98 network). If I do Start/Logoff Windows restarts (not the computer only Windows) and presents a login screen and requires a login.
How can I force the login in screen when the computer restarts (either a cold boot or reset)?

Try simple first: find password file *.pwl (should have your login name-such as name.pwl) and delete it or rename extension (name.pw_) and when you restart PC Windows will ask you to create new login and password. (It also says: if you do not enterpassword, Windows will not ask you again). If I understood your question correctly it should help.

I agree with answer number 6 . Please note that this only solves the windows logon but it doesn't allow network access . For network access you need to install a Client , File and print sharing if the computer is going to carry a shared resource anda network protocol . You need to configure the properties of all the above . In particular the primary network logon to client for microsoft networks and Properties of the client to the type of logon eg WinNT domain . You also need to set the Workgroup name .

Good luck

Assuming that you do have the network logon seleted as your default, I have found that sometimes windows will still bypass your network logon. If this is so, remove everything in your network properties in the following order:

1: File and PrintShareing
2: All Clients
3: All protocalls
4: Network Adapter Drivers

After you remove them, reboot. Then reinstall all the network adapters, protocals, clients and services, then this will allow you to have your network logon.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like your Network settings are not setup right . Right Click on the 'Network Neighborhood' icon and select 'Properties' You didn't say if you were logging on to a peer-to-peer network or domain, but you should have: Client -- Client for Microsoft network ,Protocol -- TCP/IP and NetBEUI ,File & Print Sharing ,Primary Network Logon: Client for Micro .Double click on Client Logon Validation.select the logon box and enter the domain:This will require a logon screen every time you turn on the computer, reboot, logon as different user




This will require a logon screen every time you turn on the computer, reboot, logon as different user.
