I installed a NIC card on my Win98se Compaq Armada 110 laptop, and
configured networking (thanks to "98 Guy"s procedures) so I can use this
laptop with my Verizon DSL modem. Note: I have no interest in LAN.
Every time I power up my laptop, I get a "Enter Your Network Password
for Microsoft Networking" prompt window. I press Enter to finish booting up.
I looked in my "Windows 98 Resource" book and "Windows 98 Secrets" book.
The Secrets book, page 702, says, "You can log onto the network without
seeing a logon box if you disable user profiles", but does not explain how you
disable "user profiles". The Resource book, page 1452, says, "To disable
user profile on a local computer. In Control Panel, double click Passwords
and then click on User Profiles tab. Click All users use the same...".
However, that is already selected.
I have installed NIC cards on two other different brand Win98 laptops for
the purpose of using the DSL modem, but I don't have this issue with them.
Does anyone know how I can get rid of this password prompt box from
