Tammy:

Right-click on network neighborhood, go to properties.

Click on the "client for microsoft networks". Below the white box, there is a pull-down menu. It says "client for microsoft network". Pull that down and choose 'windows logon'. Click OK.

It will make you reboot. On reboot, don't enter a password, just hit enter. This should clear up the password question on each boot.

Betty:

Not sure exactly what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a dos prompt (the c:>), then click start, run, type in 'command' without the quotes and hit enter.

If you want to boot into dos press the F8 key while the computer is booting. Then select the "Boot to DOS" option. Or, just click start, shut down, restart in dos mode.

Hope that helps,

Man... I wish your friend didn't take it to the shop. I am sure they will only pop the battery out and charge like HECK for correcting that problem. People think auto-mechanics are dishonest... man, that doesn't even come close to computer repairmen.

However, if you come to Shreveport, LA area... I fix without charging a bundle. :)

CJ:

I am assuming that this password is the BIOS password, not a Windows password? Does the computer boot to windows and then ask for the password, or does it turn on and ask for the password? If it is windows, just hit cancel.

If not, then it is in the bios. Here is what to do:
Get your motherboard book out. Check to see if there is a Jumper to reset the cmos. This would be a little peice of plastic over a couple pins to reset all the information stored in the bios.

If it does not have a jumper, or you cannot find the book, then try this: Open the case and remove the button battery in the motherboard. It will be about an inch in diameter and silver. Remove it and leave it out for several hours. (make sure the computer is also unplugged.)

I believe that should also reset everything. Let me know how it goes.

Good Luck,

Josh Lowe

Those folks with password problems. Do a "file" then "find" then type in "*.pwl" (without the quotes) Note make sure you are searching drive C
This will bring up a list of all windows passwords
Right click on them and delete them all.
After that go to settings>control panel and double click "Network". Halfway down make sure that "Windows logon" is chosen from the drop down box. Next time you re-boot ..... no password needed

Dawn ,go to www.microsoft.com and in search type regclean. Download and run it. Also go Start then programs/accessories/system tools/scandisk and run it.Then, in the same section (system tools) go to disk defragmenter and run it.
Make sure the screen saver is turned off. E-me if you don't know how to do it.

You will find passwords by going to Start > Settings > Control Panel > and then selecting Passwords. Hopefully this will help you.

Hello Everyone,

When I first setup my computer, I set it up not to require a password protected logon. Well, one day I was fooling around with all the settings and now I'm prompted for a password everytime I log on. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to disable this feature. Anyone know how?
