My system-Windows ME

The other day i was just looking at the networking options (because i am going to set up a network when i get my 12 inch powerbook) it saved the changes I made and now whenever I log into my computer It has a network log in and I can't figure out how to get rid of it ( i also have a icon on my desktop i can't delete called "My Network Places"
can i get rid of these things (at least until I get my new power book)

when you log on, you have the choice to logon on over your network or THIS COMPUTER (if you have set up a network) you just chose which you want!!! if you want to get rid of the MY NETWORK PLACES you right click on your desktop go to PROPERTIES then DESKTOP at the botom select CUSTOMIZE DESKTOP and then uncheck what you do not want shown ie, MY NETWORK PLACES or MY COMPUTER etc....

Howdy:

Right click on the My Network Places icon and selct "properties"..

Now change the logon from "Client for Microsoft Networks" to "Windows Logon"..

Apply and okay out.. Reboot..

The logon window may come up once more.. If it does, just click "okay".. DO NOT "x" out or click "cancel"..

Install and run the System Policy Editor (poledit.exe) - it's in the \tools\reskit\netadmin\poledit folder of the CD.

Select Open Registry from the File menu.

Double-click on the Local User icon.

Open Local_User\ Shell\ Restrictions.

Check Hide Network Neighborhood.

Click OK, and select Save from the File menu.

You'll have to restart Windows for this change to take effect.
