Ghostly Profiles

At Windows start-up a username/password is requested, although I defined  "All users of this PC use the same preferences and desktop," under Passwords in Control Panel. =;))
What's more, after searching the MS support, I found how to disable (but that was done already; !;<) ) and remove existing profiles. In the registry there is supposedly an entry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProfileLst\<username>", but not in my registry! %:()
Dial-up doesn't want to remember the password if the logon is "cancelled", it does when I use a username/password (I took "b" and "b" ?;)) for fun) and then it saves the password. Still no profiles in registry or any Windows\Profiles\<user name> folders

Any ghost (user) busters around?

A way around this is to set a blank (nothing) password. W95 will not ask you for a password then but it will log in to the OS thus be able to use its passwordlists to remember Dial up passwords an similar. If all the users on the Workstation will use the same preferences and desktop it is almost the same as all of them ware 'logging on' with the same userid (Wich will be virtualy no logon when no password is used.)

apart from setting no (a blank) password, it is necessary to enter a (fake) name.
