Windows User Settings

By CMHJon ·
Have any of you got this message...

"You have not logged on at this computer before. Would you like this computer to retain your individual settings for use when you log on here in the future?"

In this particular instance, the answer to the above message is no! So why does it keep popping up and how can I get rid of it permanently (without having to respond with Yes)?!?!?! HELP!

I don't have a win9x just right now to answer in detail.
But in control panel there is a icon called users (or profiles). In there there is a setting asking if you want windows to use 1 profiles for all users that logon into that pc, or that all users have there own settings.
Right now you have to change that so that windows uses 1 profile for all users that logon to that pc.

regards,

Leopold

The control panel icon is the Passwords icon. Once the icon opens go to the User Profiles tab and you will see two options. Select the "All users of this computer use the same preferences and desktop settings" option.

The other option allows multiple users to each have their own desktop settings. When a user logs on they will see

"You have not logged on at this computer before. Would you like this computer to retain your individual settings for use when you log on here in the future?"
and choosing "Yes" will then create a separate profile for them.

If you turn that off, or say no, beware that some programs will not work right. Example roaming profiles in netscape with book marks and e-mail at the college I worked for couldn't get it to work. and we had to go around and post "Make sure you answer Yes if you are new to the comtpuer" so we wouldn't get overwellemed with help calls on netscape not working.
