Joe and Matlin, Sorry it took me so long to jump in... You should both go over these steps and it will rid you of that login prompt and properly save passwords. 1)Delete all *.pwl files. (Start/Find/Files or Folders and search your drive for them.) 2) Now go to: Start/Settings/Control Panel/NetworkIcon/Configuration Tab. Make sure that "Client for Microsoft Networks" is in the list. If it is not there, then install it: a. Push ADD button b. highlight "Client" in the list shown c. Push ADD button d. Under Manufacturers, highlight "Microsoft" e. Under Network Clients, highlight "Client for Microsoft Networks" f. Push OK button 3) Make sure that "Windows Logon" is selected in the "Primary Network Logon" box. 4) Reboot your computer 5) When you see the "Enter Windows password" screen during the reboot, be sure and click "OK" with no password entered. 6) You will be prompted to confirm, click ok again with no password entered. That's it. You will no longer see the windows password screen on bootup and password should now save.

Try changing the type of login under network properties. If it's Family Login try changing to Windows Login. Try Tweakui ( http://download.com.com/3000-2341-2830963.html?legacy=cnet ) and set login to automatic. But don't be surprised if you're forced to live with it. I'm stuck with Win98 on my laptop and I swear I tried everything but it still stops at that blasted login screen.
