View Full Version : can't keep passwords

31-10-2001, 10:27 PM
Hi, running Win 98se, boots straight to windows with no logon or password required.

No matter what I do I can't get the 'dial up connection' box to keep our password.

Any advice welcome.

You could try installing client for MS networks - the following procedure worked for me:

Step one. The first thing that you need to do is click on the start button and open up the control panel.

Step two. Now that you have the control panels open, double click on the control panel called Network.

Step three. In Network, the first thing that you want to do is make sure that your primary network logon is set to 'Windows Logon' and not something else.

Step four. Next you need to add the Client for Microsoft Networks. To do this click on the add button and then select clients. Next choose the Microsoft option and double click on Client for Microsoft Networks. Note: at this time Windows will most likely prompt you for the CD-ROM.

Step five. Click OK and when it asks you if you want to restart your computer click yes.

Now you should be able to check save password. If you are wondering why the 'Network Neighborhood' icon is now on your desktop and it wasn't before, it is because of what you just did. Getting it off without removing the save password option is difficult so I recommend you just leave it there (if you ever get a network it will come in handy). If you really want to get it off, you can use a Microsoft PowerToy called TweakUI to remove the icon from the desktop. In order to find TweakUI, simply do a search at the software search section of Computing.Net.
