hello,

I recentley added a user for variouse reasons, and now I don't need the user profile anymore.
I deleted the user profile, but when I start-up I still get a
 'Log on' window, ofcoarce there is no user to select and i have to press 'Cancel' to get into windows.

How can I go back to my original settings?

Turn of the Win 9X log in Box

Click  Start >Settings >Control Pane >Network

1. Change the primary Network logon to “Windows Logon” (Don’t panic if its already set to this :0)
2. Now do a search on the hard drive with a .pwl extension (password files) Click Start >Search >For Files and Folders and search for *.pwl
3. DELETE ALL the .pwl files
4. Reboot the PC at the Logon Box just click OK (Don’t put in a username or password!!)

You should now be "logon Box Free"

If this didn’t work

1. Click Start >Run >type “sysedit” {enter}
2. Bring the “system.ini” file to the front and delete any entry under [Password Lists]

If it STILL won’t work

1. Click Start >Run > Type “regedit” {enter}
2. Navigate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\current version\network\real mode net\
3. Right click “real mode net” and choose New >Binary Value, call the value AutoLogon set its value to 01 00 00 00

After deleting the *.PWL files as sirbounty suggests, you will be prompted for a password.

Don't type anything and just press enter.

That should do it (the easy way).
