I am running Window 98. Configured it for a Microsoft NEtworjing. Do not remember my username or password. This is a personal laptop, so it's just running on a home network.

How can I get back control of my laptop?

so you configured your laptop to connect to the network, but you didnt set a username/password & it still asks you for one?

The laptop was a han-me-down from my fathers that he used at work. I'm quessing that they had a username/passwoprd setup and since he didn't use it on a network he never had this problem.

Can you get it to boot up into Windows and do you have an administrator account?
