Logon Box Disappears

By dmiga ·
In Win98 SE, I am having a problem with the Network Logon box and Win password box. It seems that whenever the PC is booted, either password box stays on the screen for 4 seconds then disappears. Windows continues to load, then I must log off then log back onto log on successfully. By the way, after a two hour fee based call to MS support, they were stumped too.

It Almost looks like you have autologon enabled. I'm Sure MS checked for that , but just in case make sure you don' have this key in your registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsCurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net
AutoLogon=<x>
where <x> is a number.

Remove your network driver from "Device Manager". Click Start/Settings/Control Panel/System then click the "Device Manager" tab. Highlight your NIC card and click Remove. Have the driver disk ready and restart your PC. Windows 98 will automatically detect it and reinstall the driver.

If that still didn't work. After removing the NIC driver from Device Manager, physically remove the NIC card. Restart your PC without the card. Then shutdown. Re-install the card. Start the PC and Windows 98 will go through detecting it and you supply the driver.
