Re:How Do I Disable Windows Logon Window?
"How Do I Disable Windows Logon Window?"
Frankly, the side effect of removing the MS Client in the Network Control Panel will do this, but you may not be happy that you must enter the password to your ISP from now on.
The usual fix is simple but does NOT disable the logon, but merely logs on without bothering the user. No tweakui is needed.
1. Find and delete the .PWL files in C:\Windows
2. In the Network Control Panel, set the logon to Windows. (Reboot.)
3. For the last time enter a NAME, but do not touch the password or cancel button. If you do, go to Step 1.
4. Click OK.
It shouldn't bother you again and you will have the benefit of Windows remembering other passwords. I do not know how to get all the benefits and not have Step 3 removed.
Re:Re:How Do I Disable Windows Logon Window?
bob i remeoved client and no pass word needed for log on is that because of im useing cable?
Best of luck.
The user identity feature of OE and it's password saving may be disabled.
Always your choice on the matter.
This Sounded So Easy
... until I did a search for those .PWL files. None showed up. How can that be if I am still getting that logon? I tried just changing the Logon in the Network Control Panel to Windows, but of course that only made things worse by giving me yet another window that told me that my Windows password was incorrect. I'm now back to MS Client. Is the logon screen here to stay?
Explorer hides files.
The average Windows 98/ME machine will have these files in C:\Windows You can remove MS Client with known side effects if you want.
BUT here's an Web article you should read and see if you can follow its instructions:
That article included everything I did yesterday. However, it must have been the sequence of steps that made the difference. The article specifies deleting those .pwl files AFTER settings are changed in the Control Panel. That did it! This time I was able to easily find and delete them. Windows Logon all gone! This is by no means a criticism of your instructions, Bob, but only to let others know that sometimes general hints have to be tweaked a bit depending on a particluar machine. Thank you so much for the link to the article. I could not have done it without your help.

H, Why Post To A 2 Year Old Thread...?
....that was already resolved? Save your good answers for newer posts with the same question. By the way, although your method will sometimes fix the issue, if you don't delete the .pwl files per Bob Proffitt's post above, the log in may still pop up.
