I recently purchased a new box(Amd 6/2, 300mz,64mb ram)with Win 95 installed. They had all the network protocals listed but this is a one person, unnetworked box. Now, every time i
start my computer I am asked for a logon/password. How do I
cancel the logon/password requester box?

If it is asking for a windows user name and password:
Go into the control panel by clicking start/settings/control panel.  Double click on the passwords icon.  Click on the 'User Profiles' tab.  make sure that 'all users of this PC use the same settings' is selected.  Click OK
Click start/find/files or folders/ search for *.pwl.  delete all pwl files you find.  Reboot your computer and when it asks you for your user name and password, make sure to leave the password blank.  If it asks you to confirm the password, again be sure it is blank.

If it is asking you for a network password:
 Go into control panel (see above) and double click on the network icon.  Double click on the Client Icon (ie Client for Microsoft Networks) and make sure 'log into domain' is NOT checked.

This should take care of your problem

I actually worked this one out before jnork answered by looking in Windows 95 secrets 4th edition but I appreciate the effort and the answers are clearly stated.
Thanks again
