When a new person logs in the network with a Win95 pc, the name of the previous user still exists at the login-box.
I don't want that: everything should be empty, a 'clean' login-box.

Regretably, I don't have an answer for you, guidob but I do recommend you up the "ante" (so to speak). 5 points? Your question is likely to be ignored. In addition, your question may be more well-suited for the "Win95networks" section. Whatever the case, I haven't got a clue. Good luck.

If you were to go looking in your ".INI" files you will find something referencing this.. probably listing the last person logged in.  Either Microsoft allows you to remove the line or you will have to have make a batch file that copies a backup copy of that ini without a login name in there over top the original at every boot.  

Hope I was helpful

I did that previously at my last job, been a few months though and I am looking into it....

Angel has it correct...  
I may wait till the ante is raised...  too much effort behind the scenes for some of this stuff...  

I suspect user didn't realize this wasn't a well known fix...
But I still haven't figured answer myself yet so...

guidob,
1. Create a file named "NAMEDEL.REG" in the Windows directory with the following ascii text in it:

---- begin below this line ------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Logon]
"username"=""
---- end above this line --------------------

2. Create a shortcut in your startup folder with the following commandline information:

C:\WINDOWS\REGEDIT.EXE /s c:\windows\namedel.reg

NOTE: If you are using POLEDIT you may have to enable the use of REGEDIT.
