Networking Logon Disabled?
forumx Aug-29-01 10:32 PM
I am using Windows ME and i recently added a HP Deskjet 840C printer. When i installed the drivers, it somehow disables my auto logon to the network (was using tweakUI to log on automatically) i removed the software from that computer and then it booted up fine and logged in automatic like it used to. i then moved the printer to another system and now the same thing. why does the printer software disable my auto login? since tweakui can no longer auto log me in, how can i disable the logon screen myself without losing any network features? another way to login automatic? please help. (by the way it is the network logon, not the windows logon)

How do I automate a Windows 9X/Me logon to a windows NT network domain?

Start>Control Panel>Passwords>Windows Password>Uncheck Microsoft Networking>
Ok>Enter the NT password in Old Password or whatever your Windows password is>
Make the New Password and Confirm Password fields blank>OK>
Double click Network>Client for Microsoft Networks>check Logon to Windows NT domain>enter the domain name>
Ok>change Primary Network Logon to Windows Logon>Ok>
Reboot when prompted>at the Logon Window enter the password to logon to the NT domain account>check Remember password.
When you reboot again everything should be automated; you will not see the Windows logon, but if you have mapped drives, you will see Windows connect to them in a flash.

Skip the domain settings if you do not have a server. Larry
