Suddenly, on loading I have a User and Password pop up, I never had before. Please tell me how to disable or delete it, so it doesn't come up.
I tried the "*.pwl" delete in Find, but no success.
Thanks.

Hi Jacl0611,

search your harddrive for *.pwl
delete all found files, then reboot, now you shouldn't get the loginbox again.

Greetings,
