Saving Password In Windows 95/98
Occasionally, Windows 95/98 customers may find that when they click on the
'Save Password' checkbox, their password doesn't actually save. In
rare cases, this box may be greyed out. This is the result of a known
bug in Windows, but luckily, the solution is simple. Just follow
the easy instructions below.
- Open up an MS-DOS Prompt Box by going to 'Start | Programs | MS-DOS
Prompt'. The DOS Prompt will come up either in a window or full screen,
but you won't exit Windows.
- The DOS Prompt should read C:\WINDOWS> - if not, type
cd\windows and hit Enter.
- Type del *.pwl and hit Enter. This will delete your password
files, but not any of your settings (any user profiles you have will still
- Restart the computer.
- Windows should prompt you to enter a login name and a password. This is
for Windows only, not Texas.Net. If you don't want this box
to come up again, just leave both blanks empty. When you hit OK, you will
be given a chance to verify your password. Do so, and your settings will
be saved. Now you should be able to save your password.
