    Can't get past "Enter password to login onto network (go online)"

    Have tried to install Win 8. Presently running Win 7 (single PC).

    Everything goes fine until I come to input screen asking for password to either "login to network" or "login to go online" (don't remember exactly).

    Have no idea what this password is. Can anyone tell me what is going on here and how best to determine the required password.....

    Thanks in advance as I am really stuck here.

    Within a network (accessing a workgroup share), you need the user name and password used on the network machine.
