Login Script will not run on Boot up

By creamyhendrix ·
Help, I am running a Windows 98 machine that is supposed to log onto the network under a guest account except that it never can get onto the network - the login script never initializes. I have checked all of the settings under Network properties and they are all correct. I have deleted and reentered the Guest.pwl file to no avail and have even reloaded Windows but still the problem is not solved. Is there a registry setting I'm missing? Any help would be much obliged. thanks

we need your network os. this is a domain? what i would try maybe is sit down at win98 box, login as guest try to run batch file from its location )on server?) by executing it from command prompt. see if runs ok then. if yes then you have probably file location problem. are others running login script ok? are you sure the guest account is enabled in the domain.

I should have added this before, its weird all of the other computers log onto the network upon boot up except for this one. I have to click log off and then the computer will automatically log onto the guest account. It seems as if there is a file missing somewhere but I don't know what this file is. We are using Windows NT 4.0 for our network OS, the guest account is within a domain. The problem is not with the server because the guest account is enabled and all of the other computers are running the login script ok. What else could this be?

Try configuring your NIC to have a manually configured speed and duplex setting not auto detect. Also I assume that you have set the MS client properties to logon to the domain

Finally I found a solution to my problem. Found article # 141858 in Microsoft's Knowledge base "No Windows or Network Logon Dialog Box at Startup" The Registry Key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Network\Autologon" was to blame, so I deleted it.
