Try This

According to your description, I guess you have a window95 or Win98 PC.
Here what you can do.
Click on START
Find - Files or Folder
Find *.pwl and Delete them all.
Reboot your pc.
Windows will display your Windows Username again, but you can erase it and type in whatever you want.......for examples:

Username: TEST
Password: Leave Blank <-- don't fill in anything

Hit OK, it will bring you to another window and ask you to type in your password and confirm your password again......
*****************CLEAR THEM OUT************
and Hit OK.
Next time you restart your computer --------Won't have that annoying message again.

DUN - Dial-Up-Connection:
Password remeber, on My computer ......Network Neighborhood......or Dial Up connection.......then Double click on your should bring up a box for you to dial
***Under Username and Password, there is a little box for you to click in.......(Remember password).

I hope it help

Some time back I found that when using profiles in Win98 only the secondary profiles DUN settings will be retained meaning that the primary profile will always have to fill password and choose connect......Mike
