Disable Windows 98 Password Prompt

How To Disable The Password Dialog Box At Windows 98 Startup

If your computer came preconfigured with Windows 98 already loaded, chances are that when you start Windows 98, you're prompted for a User ID and Password before you see the Windows Desktop. The unique User ID and Password lets you keep customized settings for the Desktop such as icons and color patterns, so the machine can be used by more than one person. What if you are the only user the system and you don't want to enter a User ID and Password? Well here's how you can disable the Password Dialog box at Windows startup:

1 - Right-click the Network Neighborhood icon

2 - Select Properties from the drop down menu

3 - Click the Configuration tab, and select Windows Login from the Primary Login menu

4 - Click OK, then respond NO when Windows 98 prompts you to restart your PC

5 - Click Start, then Settings, then Control Panel

6 - Double-click the Passwords icon

7 - Click the User Profiles tab

8 - Select "All users of this computer use the same preferences and desktop settings."

9 - Click the Change Password tab, then the Change Windows Password button. Enter a blank password, then click OK to save your settings and close the dialog box.

The next time you start Windows 98, you won't be prompted for a password.
