After I boot my computer to go into windows my pc logs me in with out a password, it never before did this untill I reinstalled win98 to get rid of the windows protection error. you need to restart your computer. I got rid of that but now my computer auto logs into my old desktop without a password, then for no reason at all my computer freezes. Now I can log out and relog in and my settings are restored, but that is only if I manage to log out before it freezes. If any one has any ideas, I would appreaceate it.

Thanks Tim

something does not sound right about that....Change it to Windows Logon, close the bos, then reopen, change to Microsoft Networks, then close, then reboot after hooking up the network cable. Give it time, then check the IP address for the NIC

Start > run
winipcfg

got it to stop freezing, but now I can't change the size of my desktop, and it is acting like it has another profile on it(Checked) but it does not. I have to log out and relog into my profile. This happenes every time I boot my computer. Now my computer is running really slow.

Thanks

I am sorry, but some piece of info has not been conveyed (or I missed it).

backing up...(I wish you would have put everything in 1 thread)

You had a windows protection error and you did...a refresh?

How did you get it to stop freezing?

Why is it acting like it has another profile?

What do you mean by " have to log out and relog into my profile" ?

To get it to stop freezing I unpluged my network cable and rebooted. Then when I first boot instead of going to the windows login screen it takes me directly to my old desktop, then to get to the desktop that I am using right now I have to log out and enter my password.

Thanks

because it does not go to the login screen, it just goes to my old desktop.

Actually, if you had multiple profiles, it would ALWAYS give you a login.

You have it reversed.

Either way, we want it to log you in....

One more time, control panel > network....you have CLIENT FOR MICROSOFT NETWORKS selected in the Windows logon drop down menu....what is in the box above this selection

At least you should have a tcpip, a device, and a networking client

report back exactly what is in that box.

no...that is good. You can delete the ipx/spx stuff unless you are on such a network (and you're not).

it's not the problem, but you don't need it

I need to research this
microsoft tv/video connection

Don't know if it could be causing problem...

Shouldn't.

You don;t have powertoys or something like it that autologs you on?

Before all this began, you logged on using a username and password, but you logged on to what? Network, or machine?

And this is a dial up or cable/dsl connection?

When I loged on I would log on to my pc. And I am using a dial up connection. If its ok I will remove the tv/video connection because I don't use it.
