    After rebooting, how do I force my PC to require a password?


    Hello

    How do I force my PC to require a password when logging in?

    I tried running NETPLWIZ but although "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" is ticked this is NOT TRUE. As things stand after I reboot, the username is defaulted and I simply click "Sign in" and I'm in, without requiring a password!

    Thanks
