Win95 windows password

By Islander ·
How do I disable or delete the Windows Password screen when win95 boots up? I do not want users to enter a windows password at all so disabling it would be perfect. Please HELP.

thanks

On C:\Windows there should be a file with *.pwl which holds the windows passwords. Just delete it. When the Windows password pops up again keep the password box blank which should disable the password for that user.

If your PC has a network card in it then it forces a login box. A way around it is to use TweakUI to autologin.

To disable to win95 logon (for windows not the network):

Search for and delete all .pwl files. This is windows password list. Restart the machine. When prompted to login, click ok (leave password field blank). To confirm the password, leave both boxes blank. Restart and you won't be prompted to logon.

Now .... If the machines are connected to a network (LAN or internet), you can remove the client service (client for microsoft networks). Or, you can try to set the primary logon to WINDOWS.Even though you have a network card in the machine, you can still not be prompted for any password.

Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Network

Create the DWORD key: DisablePwdCaching

When its hexadecimal value is set to 1, it will not prompt for, or store, a local Windows password.
