Win98 won't save passswords

I downloaded some upgrades to Win98 from Microsoft.  After doing this when I attempt to log on to my employers network Win98 asks for my login and password.  It does offer to keep my passwork by checking the box, but it does not.  I checked Microsofts page and they suggested deleting the .pwl file and rebooting.  Tried that, but it didn't work.

CameronCarl, if you have deleted all *.pwl.
Go to the Control panel, network icon
Make certain that you have installed the network component
Client for Microsoft Networks,
and Primary Network Logon is selected
[Client for Microsoft Networks],

Then reboot computer. When logon at the boot, you have to put a password in the logon window. It will ask you to reconfirm and then click OK to boot into normal window.

This will recreate the primary password cache file of your user interface - user.pwl

After that, all your passwords in Win98 including DUN will be cached and saved.

Let me know if it worked.        pslh
