Windows Networking, Password

By peetree ·
I recently reformatted and reloaded 98SE. I downloaded TweakUI, installed it and now when I reboot it asks me for a password. I have selected the password to be filled in automatically and the "Clear last user" has been checked. The screen fills it in but it says, "The password you typed is incorrect." I wish to eliminate this altogether because it is a single-user system. I read a response regarding this and according to the response you find the .pwl file, delete it, reboot and when it prompts you for a password you leave it blank then choose ?OK.? I did this, but it now asked me to confirm the password? I am lost! I found the answer before, but never copied it to hardcopy for future reference.

Yes, delete all .pwl files... Reboot, logong with your username, leave password blank, select ok, ok... Next time your reboot, there should be no password.

Not meaning to be funny but pre-windows2000 systems do not require passwords anyway, even though they ask for one.
The best thing to do at the logon screen is to simply click the cross in the top right hand corner of the dialog box asking you to enter the password. This will allow you access into the pc.
Then go into my computer > control panel> users and Passwords and delete any user accounts that exist in there.
If you want to delete the old passwords you can simply click start > find > and type in *.pwl
this will show any passwords that are stored on the C you can delete them from there.
P.S. the article you are talking about would have told you to go into My Computer > Control Panel > Network and deleted client for microsoft networks then r-einstall this gets the pasword dialog box back to the default as you wanted.
