Hi, I'm working w/ an older laptop with Windows 98 .. it has an external 3.5 floppy drive on it. it is currently set to logon to a network, & I was wondering if anyone knew how to change it so that it will just logon to the computer from now on (I don't know the password for it). Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

1st search your Windows folder for a .PWL file and delete it.

After deleting it, log off and logon again.

You will get a prompt for username and password. For username, enter your name and leave it blank for password.

Once you've done that, the next time round, you would not be asked to logon again.
