Windows Login

A login window pops-up after networking software such as TCP/IP is added to a computer running Windows 95/98. 

The password is stored in the c:\windows folder and has the extension PWL. When a users logs on locally to a Windows 98 computer the pop-up window requesting the password can be bypassed by simply pressing the cancel key. And since the password is stored in an unprotected file in the windows folder which ends in PWL it is very easy to delete this file and the next time it asks you to log on just make up a new password.

Since this method is very insecure in order to really protect the system you need to switch to Windows NT. There are several programs you can buy that force users to log on. One can be found at the annoyances.org site. Another product, "The Lock", can be found at the crashcoursesoftware.com site.
