The problem is that i think i may seperated my windows 98 into users, and so now every time i start up my pc i have to enter my user name and password, and I am the only person that uses my pc, so it is pointless, and I have no idea how to get rid of it.

Search c:\windows for *.pwl and delete them
When you reboot put any username and leave the password blank

This will get rid of the logging prompt unless you have a network card installed which you may also have to change the "Primary Network Logon" in the Network properties to "Windows Logon"

Try the first suggestion, reboot and if prompted for password again, redo the first suggestion and the second.
