Password problems

By bill.boyle ·
I have @home cable & a dial up account on my system. When I open MS Outlook, I have both accounts setup to drop mail.
However, my dial up account always prompts me for the password. The settings will not allow me to save the password for automatic login.
I remember reading something about uninstalling & reinstalling Client for Microsoft Network and creating the dial up account again that will allow the pasword to be saved.
Also, this procedure allowed the user to eliminate the Client logon dialog box from appearing on Windows boot up.
I have contacted both the dial up ISP (Sympatico) and the @Home (Rogers) service to get some technical assistance. Neither were able to offer a solution and suggested contacting each others service.

Password problems

by Parbo In reply to Password problems

If you are having problems trying to get DUN to remember your password and you find the option grayed out then there are a few things you can try.

1. Make sure you have Client for Microsoft Networks installed on your system. Control Panel / Networking / Add / Client / Microsoft / Microsoft Networking.

2. Your Windows startup is configured to ask for a password and you are hitting the esc key when the logon box is displayed.

3. You have a corrupted password file. Do a search for *.pwl in the Windows folder and rename all the files you find. Note - this will force you to rebuild your password files from scratch.

4. Check the Registry:


Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net.
If you see autologon (on the right side) with a value of "00 00 00 00", double-click on it, and change the value to "01 00 00 00 00".
Exit RegEdit and restart the PC.
Hope this works for you Bill
