You can go to the passwords in control panel and change the windows password to your nt network password but you have to know what your original windows password was. Next option is to do a Find on *.pwl this is the windows password file, find yours and delete it.

One addition to the previous advice: next time you start windows and enter your network password it will ask you again to enter Windows password. You can enter the same password as your network one or delete whatever you have in that window and leave the psw empty. It doesn't protect anything anyway, so why bother.

In adition to the two previous advices, go to you "dos prompt" within your OS, once you are in your DOS screen, type DIR "*.pwl" once the list comes up, just delete all those PWL's with the exception of the one you recognize as your network id, or account name, next time you log in, after your Windows network login screen appears and you put your account and password you'll see that anoying screen again, only this time you will highlight the account name, then you'll delete it and then you willpress enter...the anoying second windows login screen won't be appearing after that..

A quick way is to hi-lite everything in the password box, delete it, and hit okay. It shouldn't show up anymore.

Delete all the pwl files on the machine, reboot and log back in your will be asked to confirm password delete the ****** and press return this will then set your Windows password to blank whilst leaving the NT password alone.
