Removing Password protection

I am running win98.  I had my two computers networked together and had to use a password to get on them. I no longer have two computers and want to remove the password protection. I thought I got it right but. I no longer have to login when I turn on the computer. But if I log on the the internet, it takes a VERY long time (about 90 sec.) to verify the connection. But before it verifys the connection another "Welcome to Windows" password box pops up.  How do I turn off that password box and speed up my connection status.

Thank you,
Todd

Go into your Dialup Networking folder, and right click on the connection for your ISP.  Select properties from the menu that pops up.  You need to uncheck the setting that says 'Log on to network.'  This should fix your problem.

It worked but the olny problem is now it wont remember my password. But it worked much faster and without that pesky password window.  Any idea how to now get it to remember my password?
