When the Microsoft Family Logon network client is your primary networklogon and you start your computer, the Password box in the Enter Passworddialog box may be unavailable for some or all users. If you click a username and then click OK, you have full access to that user's profile.
This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions exists:
The <username>.pwl file is missing, where <username> is the name you use to log on to Microsoft Windows 95/98.
You do not have a password.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
Click Cancel in the Enter Password dialog box.
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Users.
In the Users box, click the user you want, and then click Set Password.
Type a password in the New Password and Confirm New Password boxes, and then click OK.
