I'm using Netscape4.5 on WinNT4.0. The way it's set up now, whenever Netscape is fired up, it requires the user to login: "The profile 'username' requires a password. In order to continue, please enter your local profile password."
How do I disable this so that Netscape will start without requiring profile login?

I am not 100% sure, but if during startup (the first time), take the default seetings without adding name or other information.  You may want to try and delete all the profiles, then when it asks for a profile, do not type anything into the fields, but continue by clicking on "next" until you get to "finish".

Instead of re-downloading and re-installing, I would like to delete the profiles from my current installation ... is that possible?

You should be able to do this simply by specifying Edit->preferences->mail server -> mail server user name and  Edit->preferences->mail server -> more options -> remember my mail password.

arunm:  I think he is talking about the intial opening of Netscape, not Messenger.
djc2: Yes.  Go to Program Files> Netscape> Users, then delete the file(s) named by each user (if it is yourself, look for your name).  Delete it.  Then the next time you open Netscape, it should ask for a profile.  Just leave it as default.
