Network password question.

Ok, I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled ME (first time I have ever done it) and inadvertently set up the network feature and I get the "enter network password" box at startup. I hit cancel and it continues into the desktop. My question is "how do I stop the network feature so this box doesn't pop up at startup. I have no need for networking and just want to shut it off. Thanks in advance.

Right click Network Neighborhood on the desktop, select Properties, make sure Primary Network Logon is set to Windows Logon. You could also remove the Client for Microsoft Networks.

Or, you can enter a blank password, and it will never ask again. If you can't enter a blank password, delete *.pwl from the windows directory and reboot.
