    I appreciate any assistance in this issue. We have four
    Windows 98 machines on our network of 170 machines with
    this problem. When the computer is turned on the Primary
    network logon that comes up is the Windows Logon instead
    of Client for Microsoft networking which we have as
    primary. Once logged off the Client for Microsoft
    networking comes up and the user is able to log in to the
    domain. If the computer is restarted instead of logged
    off, the windows logon comes up. The tcp bindings are
    Client for Microsoft Networking. We have 30 Win98 machines
    and only four are affected. We tried troubleshooting
    everything we can think of. Uninstalling the NIC and
    reinstalling the NIC with current drivers. Uninstalling
    and reinstalling tcp/ip and all networking settings. We
    dont have any changes in our network policy and there is
    no local policy. The autologon entry in the registry is
    disabled. There is no difference in these 4 machines than
    others on our network. It is not user specific, but
    machine specific. Please help in any ideas or suggestions
    you may have.

    I looked at technet and many other sources, there is no
    mention of this problem.

    Thank you, we have already looked at that article and
    that registry is not there for us. We spent about 10 man
    hours so far on this problem and we exhaustibly search
    technet for anything that we can try.

    thank you,

  5. Have you ensured that "Client for Microsoft Networks" is the preferred
    network provider in the Network Properties screen?

    This sounds like a connectivity issue to me. If you have the client for
    microsoft networks as your primary login and yet the windows login comes
    up first, this usually means you aren't physically connected to the
    network. Or at the very least, connectivity is poor or intermitant. I
    would try moving one of the problem 98 machines to a location that a
    known working machine is using? This could help eliminate cabling, hubs,
    or switches as a problem.
