How to remove login screen


I am running windows me and a while ago i was setting up user passwords. Unfortunately i set one up for 'my network places'. Now every time the computer boots up i have to click on OK before the rest of the computer boots up. How can i remove this, i do not remember the password i used.

Does your computer at home ask for your user identification every time you start it up? If you are the single user of a home computer, you probably don't need to see the logon screen every time you boot up To turn off the password protection: Open the Network Control Panel Make sure the Windows logon is selected, not the Microsoft network logon Restart your computer When the logon window comes up, enter a name, (any name -- it doesn't matter), leave the password blank, and hit return When it asks you to confirm that blank password, hit return again After that, you should never see the logon screen again.
