Disabling AUTOLOGON in Win95???

Hi-
I've got an IBM pre-installed laptop of OSR2, and I don't want to re-install just so it prompts me to logon.  I'm familiar with old fashioned way of "enabling" the autologon (logging in w/ blank pword), but how to disable this thing, I don't know.  I've already tried logging off and back on as a new user.  That works, but upon a restart it drops me back to square one, and I have to log off in order to log on, if you know what I mean.
How the heck can I re-enable logons?????????????
Thanks-

If you haven't yet tried, go to the Control Panel and double-click Passwords. Click Change Windows Password. Type your old password (i.e., leave it blank in this case), then type your new password in the next two boxes. It should now require a pasword every time you log on.

I've fixed this problem and don't know how to retract my question here...
the proposed solution doesn't work.  The answer turned out to be deleting a key in the registry that doesn't normally exist.
HKLM\SW\MS\CV\Network\Real Mode\autologon

Double-click on the Passwords icon in Control
Panel, and click on the User Profiles tab. Select
All users on this PC use same..., choose
the desired options below, and click OK. Restart
Windows95 - when asked for a username and password,
leave the password field blank. When asked if
Windows95 should remember settings for this user,
answer Yes.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

The proposed answer won't work for my case, but I graded it excellent because I know no other way of closing the question.
I've typed the solution in the form of a previous comment.

I can't find a CV in my registry, tell me if that's the key that doesn't normally exist. I'n a registry freak.
Also, why didn't my answer work in you case. Just curious, i've never seen that fail.
Thanks for the points.

Your answer had nothing to do with why my problem existed.  Doing that would not remove the key that needed to be removed.  Also- I was trying to DISABLE autologon, not ENABLE it.
CV means current version
HKLM\software\microsoft\current version\network...

Do me a favor j, and tell me what your autologon key was,
here's mine.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net]
"transport"=""
"netcard"=""
"LoadRMDrivers"=hex:00,00,00,00
"preferredredir"="VREDIR"
