    There are a couple of ways:

    (1) Run admincfg.exe and uncheck forced domain login

    (2) Get RESOURCE HACKER.

    Open Resource Hacker.

    File > Open... > and open the file c:\windows\system\mprserv.dll

    Navigate to Dialogs > 1 >1033.

    Hit the "Show Dialog" button if the dialog box is not already showing.

    On the actual dialog box object click the domain field once to select it.

    Right click and choose "Edit control".

    In the list of styles select the line that says "ES_READONLY" so that it is highlighted.

    Click the "OK" button at the top of the Edit dialog.

    Click the "Compile Script" button at the top of the Resource Hacker edit pane.

    File > Save as... > mprserv1.dll

    Start > Shut down... > Restart in MS-DOS mode.

    At the command prompt type:

    CD SYSTEM
    then
    REN MPRSERV.DLL MPRSERV.DLL.OLD
    then
    REN MPRSERV1.DLL MPRSERV.DLL

    Reboot.
