Net ware alert: Unexpected Login Failure

I am getting an unexpected login failure everytime I try to boot my computer.  The only way to gain access is through safe mode with no networking.  I've tried uninstalling network drivers and reinstalling them.  I've also tried bypassing my switch.  System restore to an earlier config. (before the problem started) did not work either.  Neither did the last known good config.  I cannot seem to get the problem fixed.  I do not know if the problem is tied to my computer being on a large network a year ago. (Novell)  I ran the uninstall from Novell months ago, but I still see a few files on my computer and get Net ware messages.  I also still see the Novell system tray.  I don't see any active files of Novell running in the system processes.  Is there a solution to this problem(s), or am I going to have to reformat and start over?

Saw similar problems where the uninstall wasn't completed on Netware and a reinstall with the service pack helped; but if you don't need it at all unclear why what you've done hasn't resolve it.  Wonder if this other older question sheds any light.

The problem has been getting progressively worse.  The problem of unexpected login failure just started.  But I've been having problems where my computer was saying it could not find the network.  I was able to cancel and go through with login.  I was able to access and do everything though so I did not worry with it, it was just a little annoying.  I tried the link that astaec suggested.  This did not help.  I'll try reinstalling Novell and then running the uninstall agin if you think that will work, but I no longer need that network.  I no longer live on campus.  One other ques. will service pack 2 help?

Novell software is still residing on ur system and is creating all these troubles, asta is right abt reinstalling and uninstalling it properly to check if it can kick it out of the system or not !!

and I dont think so that SP2 will gonna work..... coz either Sp1 or Sp2, Novell will be there on ur system which is the maine cause of these problems =\

If the reinstall/uninstall still leaves residues, may need to try in Safe Mode with Admin access level.

If memory serves me, there's a special uninstall exe with the Novel package, though don't recall been too long; check that as well either at the Netware/Novel link or in the SW Help file.
