Bypass Login screen

Bypass Login screen

I've got Windows 98SE running.  Is there anyway that I can bypass the login screen so it doesn't even come up?  I don't have any profiles...All I do is just press ok or cancel when it comes up, but it just takes up valuable time:)  Anyways, I was just wondering if there was a way I could not have it come up.

RE: Bypass Login screen

Control Panel, Network, Change primary logon to 'Windows logon'

RE: Bypass Login screen

I just checked that...cuz I thought I had already checked it, and it has been on 'Windows Logon'.
Any other suggestions???

RE: Bypass Login screen


Grab that software & install it.  There's an option to set an automatical login to any specified user name & password.

"Windows Logon" should take care of automatically logging in as long as multiple profiles is disabled & the default username does _not_ use a password.  But if it's not, you can always use the above software.

RE: Bypass Login screen


If this system is on a domain network, then you can't do anything as the system MUST acknowledge the logon..

However, if it is standalone, then try the following...

1:  Make sure Windows Logon is the primary logon.  Go back in and set it up again.  DO NOT REBOOT WHEN PROMPTED..

2: Now, go to Start>Find (search) and do a search for *.pwl. Make sure you are searching the entire hard-drive.
Delete everything that shows up.

3: Now, reboot your system.  If the logon box shows up, just press the OKAY button..  NOTHING ELSE !!  Should be the last time you get it.
