*Feels very confused after reading post 24*

I don't have experience with WinME either except I've removed a virus from a computer with WinME long ago (I ment what I said, I removed the virus, not WinME ).

IMO WinME is Win98 (not Win98SE) with a lot of strange experimental things added.
--------------------
Now to Debbie.
As far as I understand your post:
#1: You like you to have your own desktop when you log on.
#2: You like your kids having their desktop when they log on.
#3: You like to keep the family logon because of above.
#4: You like not to have to use a password when you log on.

If you only like to get rid of having to type in your password when you start your computer, just change your password in Passwords to an empty field. When starting the computer the log-on window will still show up but you just have to hit Enter (or click OK). Remember to restart the computer after making the change.

sorry for the confusion

#1: You like you to have your own desktop when you log on.
yes, which I already do when I put in my password

#2: You like your kids having their desktop when they log on.
no, I only want my desktop to be the only one available, nobody else uses the other desktops anyway, they always use mine after they put the password

#3: You like to keep the family logon because of above.
no (see answer to #2)

#4: You like not to have to use a password when you log on.
yes

If this is too confusing or if it is too much trouble for you because you don't know windows ME (it seems nobody likes it much) then just forget it and I can live with putting in my password every time. My computer is running just okey-dokey right now and I don't want to do anything that might mess it up......

****greatful for all the help with that Rundll problem and all the help you have given before*****

Sorry if I offended you, I didn't mean to

I think you can get help with your problem in this article

Quote:

Note If you are using Windows Me on a network, you need to be logged on to the network to change your Windows password.


Above quote from the article is only to be used if you are connected to a local network where your password for logging onto your computer is verified by a server.

I was not offended at all and I did not mean to offend you either....its just such a little problem and one that doesn't cause much trouble and I didn't want you to go to any trouble for it

I'll give it a go and see what happens....thanks for the link

I went and looked at that article and there seems to be a lot of information about adding new users but none about deleting the current ones....I tried a search about "deleting user profiles" and "desktop default settings" and read and read and even went to the place where people ask questions but there are pages and pages pf questions with no search options, I looked at a few but no go (BUT THERE DOES SEEM TO BE A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH RUNDLL PROBLEMS)

I clicked on the User Profiles tab and changed it to all users of this computer use the same preferences and desktop settings option was selected and restarted but then instead of mine coming up, it was the other three (who all share the same user settings) So I went back to users and changed it back to "users can customize their preferences and desktop settings"

I'm happy to resign myself to selecting my name and putting in my password every time....please do not waste any more time on this.....I appreicate all you have done already

With all your computer know-how I'm surprised a company hasn't snatched you up already....you are much smarter than the people I talked to at hp and most would probably even let you work at home

Ewwww, seems like your WinME has an attitude

You could simply log on so you get your childrens desktop, change the settings so they are like yours, restart the computer and then do the changes you like.

Thanks for you kind words. Unfortunately it seems very difficult to get a job when one have a sore back 24/7 and haven't worked for 11 years and what computerrelated job goes there seems to be 200+ for each job that opens

not to be nosy, but in Demark do you have "pain management specialists?" or been to a chiropractor? However, after 11 years I'm sure you have had all the advice you need from laymen like me

speaking of attitudes, I was talking to my sister about Joey visiting all those porn site (after numerous warnings) and she said to call comcast (my cable modem people) and see if there was a way to filter content...hehehehehehe there sure was and now everything is filtered....and only me and my husband know the password.....he was so mad that this morning on my desktop he had removed all of my programs......I simply went into the recycle bin and added them back, but I could have gone into programs and reloaded them there....I left him his aol instant messenger and now the only way he can get on line (because the cable modem is filtered only to what we want it to be) is through aol which I can filter content on that too (he's set for mature teen, no sex sites)

Yes, I've been to a chiropractor. He taught me how to minimize the risk of having to go to a chiropractor all the time. He also said he could not cure me. I've tried several things, nothing cures me but I've learned a bit about taking care of my sore back. What 'pain management specialists' goes, working on a farm for many years have taught me how to NOT concentrate on the pain but rather 'ignore' it by concentrating on other things instead while still be carefull not to make the hurt place worse. Unfortunately this takes a lot of energy.

Pain management specialists are doctors in a relatively new field here in the USA
