Windows Network Logon - Win98

By Dreaded Mahn ·
I cannot get the Windows Logon box to appear before getting into the Windows desktop environment. I have to log off and then logon to view other computers on my network. How do I get the logon box to appear without going straight into the windows deskop?

I don't know what your network settings are, but it sounds like your default login settings are incomplete.

Is your 'Login Validation' set to login to a domain under the 'Client for "" Network Properties'?

Does your default login (windows) have a password; or was it intentionally left blank?

Try resetting your Windows Login screen name and password to the same as you Domain login; goto the Users Icon in the control panel or start another windows user with the same login as the domain login settings.

Best of luck,
Steve

The short answer is to delete the following entry in the following registry key:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net

AutoLogon=xx

(Sometimes when I cut and paste URL's it looks ok to me but once the answer is posted, an extraneous space will have crept in. Make sure you delete any extraneous spaces or the page won't load).

For example, there shouldn't be a space between 8/ and 58.
