I am not connected to any networks.  This is a stand alone desktop system.  When booting the computer I get a logon password screen.  I would like to know how to disable it.  I don't need the security at all.  I am using Win95 ver. 4.00.950.  No service packs have been used.  I look forward to your assistance.

It's very simple, follow these steps:

1) Click on Start > Find > and search for *.pwl extention file.
2) Delete this PWL (file) this will clear up the actual user name.
3) Restart your computer, and when prompted enter a USER NAME ONLY, no password
4) Click on Start>settings>Control Panel
5) Double click on the Network Icon
5) There under Primary Network Logon, change it to Windows logon

That's it restart and you will never be prompted again.
If you still have difficulties let me know we'll go over it again.

If it is a windows login goto start, control panel, passwords, and click on the radio button that begins by saying something like All user use same preferences.

If it is a network pasword goto start, control panel, network, and where it says primary logon make sure it says windows logon.
I hope that works.

You have "Microsoft Networks " installed on your computer.
Go to control panels->netwroks, and delete it.
That's the whole story.

If you still experience a problem do the following too:

1) In control panel, double click on Passwords
2) When asked for the old password >> leave it blank
3) Leave new and confirmation blank too.

This will reset it to none.  Do that if you still receive the prompt for password at startup.

No let me tell you,

When you do support you have to give detailed steps, or else stay on the bench and watch. Excuse me we are professional trouble shooters we don't copy comments.

And don't feel insulted for others we are here to help not to debate so keep cool!
