Windows 98 Network password

I have recently added a used computer to my network and this computer has a network password that I don't know. When I view the network neighborhood from any other computer this used unit is  listed, but from the used computer I get an error message stating something like "network not available". Is this due to the unknown password and if so how can I change it without knowing the current password.

  choose windows logon or windows family logon as your primary network logon find and delete *.pwl (they may be corrupt), reboot and leave password box blank also Try to delete the registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net\Autologon=<x>

And if (and only if) necessary, add an entry in:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NWNP32\NetworkProvider

Type: Binary key  Name: DisableReLogin  Value: 01

You may also see on MS KB article Q141858, for more details.

Hope this useful.

want net work logon make sure you are using client for microsoft networks as your primary logon, and also find *.pwl files and delete them (they may be corrupt) reboot and you should be prompted for a logon
Open the Passwords control panel, then switch to the User Profiles tab. Enable the option for users to customize their preferences. Additional profile settings are not recommended.
