  1. Win 98SE - tried to add file and printer sharing in network configuration but
    received error message saying I didn't have authority on this computer! Ideas
    anyone? Thanks in advance.

    an office environment? check with your IT people

    I recently purchased a used Thinkpad 560/ w W98SE off eBay, its the PC I'm
    typing this on. The prior (corp it ) owner locked the computer down such
    that I cannot enable file & printer sharing or windows update. I can connect
    to the internet, but can't attach to local printers and share on home
    workgroup.

    Is there a way to remove these constraints? I have a Win98 SE CD, but
    would prefer not to have go reinstall the OS to get around this.

    Thanks in advance for any information,

    Mark

    I'm sorry I can't recall how I got out of that one. It was a while back.
