I am having an issue with my Windows 98 desktop. I cannot log in other than the cancel option. It says that my password is incorrect when it most definitely is not. I use the same password on all my computers, and I know that it is correct!


How do I fix this and to get windows 98 to accept the password?


I Googled the problem but nothing came up other than some third party networking thing that is unrelated

If I recall, Windows 98 did not have a login password like XP and other versions of Windows

The password you may be seeing might be to long on to a network and would be present if NetBEUI protocol is installed in the network properties.

Clicking CANCEL should get you to the 98 desktop.

Or try hitting ESCape

In the beginning there was the command line.
