WINDOWS 98 NETWORK

By WIZSTORM ·
I have this strange problem with A network
Of 2 computers running win98 SE the network
Works fine but the only problem is that when I restart the computer the
"ENTER PASSWORD FOR MICROSOFT NETWORK"
Window doesn?t come up so the only way to log on to the network is by doing a logoff
through the start menu then the
"ENTER PASSWORD FOR MICROSOFT NETWORK"
Window appears and then the user can access the network.

Any advise will be appreciate.

Open the Control Panel and right-click Network Neighborhood and select Properties,Select the Access Control Tab to bring up choices,then check the profiles.
I am not sure WIN98SE will show the log on box after the restart.

If it's a Win98 peer-to-peer network, you probably doesn't matter who you're logged in as anyway.

But what's probably causing this is that the default user has a blank password. You should try changing the password through Control Panel (the current password you'll leave blank). If that doesn't work, you could try deleting *.PWL in the Windows directory, which resets everyone's passwords and personal settings.

Well, I'm not a a real professional here and I'm only a high student, so please don't blame me cuz I posted informations that everybody knows here. but when that "Enter Password" window comes up, right click Network Neighbourhood and under "Primary Network Log On", select client for Microsoft Network. Still, this is a peer-to-peer network so I guess it doesn't matter if you create password or not, because the fact that you create a Peer-to-Peer tell me that you assume security is achieved. If you are really worried about security, I suggest that you configure the user access level to let your user access your Hard Drive by assigning password for full access or read-only access.

I have recently run into the same problem, when you click the start button, you can see Log Off with no user name, and logging off causes the log in windows to come back up. After logging in everything is fine. Heres what I found, hope you are OK with using regedit, cause you need to open it and look under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net

for an autologin key. If it is 0 delete the entire key, then reboot. I found this in the MS Knowledgebase, but I cannot find it again to point you to it directly.
