Win98 Password

When setting up Win98 from scratch, I did not key in a user name, but each time my computer boots I get the enter password dialog box.  I have tried to delete any User settings, but there are none to delete.  The computer is set up for "all users use the same settings, etc."

How do I get rid of that box.

Thanks

Tom

The next time when it prompt, enter a user name and leave the password blank.  The next time you start window, it will go strange in without the prompt.
