Ok the other day I had to put my recovery disc in my computer. of course all my documents etc got deleted in the format process.
Now after I have set my computer back to how it was ( kinda ). Now without a reason everytime I turn on my computer it will ask me for a password and user name. now I havent put any I just want to get rid of that. Is there anyway I could turn of the log on password and user name?

What OS? 98? If that is the case, then either just hit enter, or hit cancel to get past it.

Then go to winguides:

That's your solution.

I dont think this will help me ATNO/TW you see the, the thing is that I havent put a password at all nor a user name it will just appear in there, when I click in "OK" it wont login , I have to click in cancel in order to login.
you know what I mean?

I'm about 99.9% sure the instructions in the link above will work. I know exactly what you're talking about and fixed the same problem you are having every single time with that resource.

Did you try it? (You still haven't said so, but from your description of the problem, I have to assume you are using windows 98.)

If for some reason it doesn't work for you when you try it, I seem to remember a registry hack that essentially does the same thing, but a little more difficult. I'd have to hunt for that one though.

Read and follow the latter part of the instructions if you are networked.

Is this win98? if so then go to network properties and change the logon type from client for windows to windows logon and remove the Client for Microsoft Networks to avoid a login prompt. Enjoy :D

exactly. and if the password itself is a problem, there is a username.pw
file located on c:\ you can remove to get around it until you reset the
password to something you know.

I think ATNO and MD's suggestions are what you need though.
