Why does windows ask for log in? I'm sure on my old PC with 98 it never asked. I have another old win 98 machine that my 7yr old uses to play around with that does have a log in pop up. Which is pretty stupid because if you cancel, you get access anyway. Is it because there is a network card installed? The only thing I can think of. It isnt connected to any network, nor the internet. Is there a way that I can turn off the login?

I could ask the same question for Win2K. My good machine has a network card too. I set up different accounts when I built it, but generally speaking, everyone uses the administrator account. Yeah, I live dangerously and put out the fires as they arise. This machine is connected to the internet with ADSL though. Should I not turn off logins with it?

98 will ask for a login if networking is installed. Windows will ask for a login if there are multiple user accounts, else how would you ever get into another account?
