    How to remove password at startup?


    Everytime I turn on my PC, I get to a login screen, and either have to type in a password or a pin to login to my PC. I have already tried using netplwiz using Command Prompt with administrative privileges, with "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" unchecked. Under "Users for this computer:" I have ASPNET (Group: Users) and then my email address under that (Group: HomeUsers; Administrators.

    + R, type netplwiz <enter>, untick the "users must enter password box" and enter your password when prompted.

    You are welcome. When it stops working (it does sometimes) just go back to netplwiz and toggle it off and then on again.
