    How do I get rid of password when booting?

    I have a desktop which never leaves my home. I live alone, no wife to check my email or look for porn in my browsing history. I have a rottweiler who doesn't like strangers and a pretty decent security system, so why does Windows 10 all of a sudden require me to type a password before I can use my computer? This started happening after one of the updates around the middle of the month. Does anybody know how to get rid of this annoyance?

    Thanks Admin, the netplwiz solution did not work because the box was already unchecked. I used regedit and discovered there was no password string so I made one and it works fine. Now if I can just figure out how to keep the latest update from coming back after I deleted it and flashing an annoying warning message every time I check gmail.
