Windows 98 log on.

How can I log on Windows 98 without having to enter my password every timeI turn the computer on? A while ago I set three different users, including myself, but now I want to go to the initial setting, that's it no passwords at all. I was able to delete the other two users, but I can't do it with my own. How can I do it?

You need to go to the c:\windows directory, and delete all files with the .pwl extension.  They should look like this
First part is the first 8 characters of the user name.  Once you delete those, restart windows.
When it boots it will have the logon box.  Leave it blank and hit ok, from then on you will not see the password box again.
1)Go to Control Panel, Users and delete all users.

2)Go to Start,Logoff click it and confirm you want to log off.

3)At the new Log on window put in the user name you want or if you don't want a user name don't put anything in the box then press OK

4) Go to Control Panel,Passwords and double click it. Click the user profiles tab and choose the first box.

5) Now you'll not be asked again
