How do I stop the dialog box for 'Enter your network password to Microsoft Netmeeting' from coming up every time I turn on the system.

The user name / password is blank and I click Cancel to continue.

Try to give an enter instead of cancel.  Then exit and start again.  What happens ?

It does not take ENTER as a response.

Then I would have to use a username/password everytime I sign on.

I have 3 computers and only have this screen coming up on 1 of them.

Windows95 needs a network ID & Password for log on the Network such as Microsoft Network or Netware network. To remove password dialogue box is followed to simple rule. The rule is following:
1. The computer has only 1 user profiled.
2. The user does not have password.
For #1, check the profile folder is in Windows folder. If there is the folder, make sure only one user. (or if you use 'Windows Logon - quick log on', remove profiles.) And if there is just 1 user  in Windows, when the dialog box appears, use the mouse to select all password in passwd text box and press delete key. After that, Window may ask you changed passwd. If so, do not press any thing (like ENTER) and just CLICK ok button with mouse. How's that?

NO. The dialogue box says to avoid typing username and password everytime type a username with no password.

Nope that does not work. I think you are confusing the Windows signon with the Microsoft Network.

If you leave the password blank on the Windows Password screen it never asks for it again. I put in a username and no password in the Netword Password box and when I rebooted the dialogue box comes up and asks for the password. I click cancel and I am OK. I don't want the dialogue box to come up.

Check if Netmeeting is in your Startup folder and remove it from there if it is.  If you're not using Netmeeting, consider uninstalling it in Add/Remove Programs.
If you're using Client for Microsoft Networks, go to Networks in Control Panel and uncheck
'Log on To Windows NT Doman'.  If you're using Windows Logon, try searching for *.pwl files and removing them from your system and then after next reboot issue a username but no password and press the OK button.

Right-mouse-click your desktop's Network Neighborhood icon and select Properties. (Alternatively, open the Control Panel and double-click Networks.) On the Configuration tab, under Primary Network Logon, click the down arrow and select Windows Logon. Click OK, wait while Windows builds its information driver base, then click Yes to restart your computer (or restart at your convenience). That annoying log-in box will never bother you again.

Yea, that got rid of the network window.

Now it comes up with the 'Welcome To Windows' window and wants a userid/password.

I click cancel, reboot and it is still there
