I have a friend who wants to use dial up networking to dial his isp without having to put the password in.  

I checked all the usual stuff.  He has Windows Network client installed and his user name is in the identification tab.  Still the save password box is greyed.  I went to the Win95 annoyances site and tried logging in as another user.  Got the windows logon, and said OK to a blank password.  So now the dial-up networking allows him to save the password.

The problem is that when he starts his computer, the orginal (no save password) is what's there.  To get the saved password, he has to close windows and log on, then it works.  How do I get the user logon to be the default (when he first starts up the computer)?

Hi bjp
I had this problem on my system for a long time. I tried every fix suggested and tried every patch offered y microsoft to no avail. I even reloaded Win 95 and started from scratch. I think some versions of 95 on certaim systems just will not work. I recently saw another series of updated fixes on another help site and followed all the suggestions with no change.
I fixed my problem with a suggestion from this site...go to www.windows95.com and download and install a program called Duncev252.  This program will put the password in the dialer automatically and works great. It never misses.
It will fix the problem and save you a lot of headaches.
