Auto login, one account, no password: avoid to click account icon?

Q: Auto login, one account, no password: avoid to click account icon?

Hi everyone and merry Christmas!

I followed the procedure found on the web, I entered "netplwiz" and did uncheck ?Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
There is no password set.
THere is just one user/account which is obviously also the administrator.
(the Account tab shows also HomeGroupUser$, but I guess is a default option...)

the point is that when I switch the pc on, I have to click on the icon of the user account in order to see the desktop. Is there any chance I can login automatically without even clicking on the user icon?
thanks a lot in advance

Preferred Solution: Auto login, one account, no password: avoid to click account icon?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There are three user accounts on my friends computer.


What if He wanted to stay logged in continuously for hours on end just to his profile without the log in screen reappearing after so many minutes (that shows everyones account like at bootup). I thought this could be achieved by disabling the --on resume, password protect-- feature.

Well, that didnt work.

I hoping to disable the time out feature, that unlogs accounts, and to just run the screen saver, so even if we're away from the computer for a few hours, we dont have to log back in.

Is this possible in XP Home?

Why is not important.... Im just wondering if its possible.

A friend of mine has been having a recurring issue with his computer that's getting worse. I've spent hours going through the forums, but haven't seen anything about this, so I'm posting here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

He uses his computer with a password protected user account, while rarely logging in/off the password protected Admin account. For months, while working in his user account, his computer will BSOD at random times whenever he has IE11 or Chrome open. He's got malware causing him issues, BUT:

In the last few weeks, when it reboots after a BSOD, it will automatically login to his Admin account on its own, without him entering his Admin password. WTH?

I've never even heard of something like this and not sure where to start. He ran Malwarebytes and sent me an email tonight (below) that listed what was found. Over the last couple of years, he seems to be a magnet for downloading PUPs, PUMs, malware, adware, viruses, etc., that I've had to help him through.

His computer is custom built:
Windows 7 Home x64 - All service packs, auto updates turned on & current
Core i5
ATI video card
Also runs MalwareBytes free

His email last night:

"I received a BSOD while logged onto my user account side with Chrome and Outlook open. I went to watch TV for an hour and when I came back to the computer I must have had a BSOD and I was logged onto the Admin side. This is the second or third time this has happened ... Read more

Every time Windows 8 boots, the system tries to login as the last user account that was used. If the account has a password, the user will be asked for a password first thing when the system starts up; if not, the system will directly log in to the user account.
Some users in my house don't want to have a password and I have to log out of their accounts and again log in to mine every time I start the computer after they used it. I'd just prefer to start with a tiled user list, in a similar fashion as it was in Windows 7 (or after you log out in Win 8).
Is it possible to disable this auto-login feature? The only way I found involves the system asking not only for the password but for the username as well, which is hardly satisfactory. Thanks!

Hello Ben,

Unfortunately, the only way is to have each user account password protected. Otherwise it will always auto sign-in to the last user account that signed out if it's not password protected.

I'm in the process of creating a build for my company using sysprep, then imagex for deploying the image.

I understand that the autologin feature must be enabled in the unattended answer file for the built in administrator account to be enabled. I've done some testing and searching but can't find anything about stopping autologin.

Once Windows has loaded into the default administrator account after sysprep, how can this autologin be disabled?
Even if I create another user account, then restart, the computer will still autologin to the administrator account.

I am ultimately going to add the computer to a domain, this may fix the issue, but does anyone know how to disable this autologin after sysprep?

Thanks in advance

A:Windows user account is not auto login

Read other 6 answers

I have a small domain of computers and a couple user accounts.  Each of these user accounts areconfigured as autologin on many different computers (e.g. the account "user1" will autologin on five different computers).  The auto-login
is configured in the registry, the profile is on a network share, the profile is mandatory.  Generally, everything with this setup works fine.

Occasionally, the computers will get a BSOD.  The particular driver/cause of the BSOD varies, but regardless of this, the behavior is always this: the computer blue-screens, then next time the computer powers on and it attempts to autologin to the previously
mentioned domain user account, Windows displays an error message saying:
"The User Profile Service service failed the log on. User profile cannot be loaded."
The only fix is to then log in as an administrator (either a local admin or domain admin) and close out a dialog box that pops up saying:
"Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"
There are two options given, "Check for Solution" and "Cancel".  Clicking on either of these options (or just X'n out of the window completely) and rebooting the computer then lets the domain account autologin.

Possible Fix?

It seems as if the computer is forcing an administrator to acknowledge that there was a blue screen before it lets any non-admin account log on to the computer.

Okay, this is for a friend. I've tried everything I've been able to find, and since she got the computer second-hand..

Let me start at the beginning. This is her Christmas present, that her mom bought for her at some auction. It's a decent system, almost as powerful as my own. That being said, the person who sold it neglected to mention that the administrator account that allows you to do ANYTHING has a password on it. Not only that, but they also neglected to give a password recovery or reset disc with the computer.

As it stands, here's what we've tried thus far:
Tried using a program known as Ophcrack on a USB drive, but for whatever reason, it won't work without administrator approval. (Yeah, that had me scratching my head, too.)
Tried to clean out the machine and do a fresh install from the boot menu. (After almost a week, you get desperate.)

Those were the two most feasible ones I could find on the web, but after that, I have no clue how to do this. (I've loved XP for as long as I can remember, so.. I'm not particularly schooled in Vista.)

Just a quick note, in case you weren't able to infer it: the PC in question is running Vista.

If anyone at all knows how we can get around this password issue, please.. this is driving her crazy, and, being her boyfriend, it's driving me crazy as well. >_<

Thank all of you for your time, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

I cannot login to my original admin account or find it. All the files are still there on my C:\Users\HybridPC folder, but I've lost the profile and user.
I think I messed things up further by trying to create/delete other new user accounts. I've attached 3 screenshots showing my C:users folder, User account screen and the netplwiz.exe profiles.

I've been adding/deleting and can't get back to square one. I don't see my user at all on the welcome screen.

New to the forums and PCs in general. Bit of back info - built a PC a month ago. Have had a few set backs with drivers and BIOS update, but it seems everything is stable for now.

I signed into my Xbox Live account about a week ago, which is linked to my hotmail/outlook account Ive had for ages. This automatically linked to my PC user account I have on this PC. I found out by rebooting, login screen shows my name as usual, but now underneath shows my email. It also changed my login password to my outlook password. Is this something to be concerned about? I can still login fine, but been nagging me because Ive never had a login password automatically switch on me before.

Hello Hansperdman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

It sounds like you switched your account that you sign in to Windows with to a Microsoft account when you setup and signed in to the Xbox app.

This is perfectly normal, and is nothing to worry about since your Microsoft account uses your email address password.

I have to enter my damned password several times a day... really annoying.
Have you tried the netplwiz app to bypass needing a signature?
It does not work for me, but may for you...
Go to start.
type netplwiz and click on apps, see one listed, run that, UN check the box which says a password is needed.
That SHOULD do the trick but does not.

I think part of my problem is having 8 win8 systems at home, all with the same username... but you would think Wiindows 8 could allow a user like me to network with my own computers without having to deal with permissions etc... really irritating.

So now I'm back to no password and in need of help. Anyone got any ideas?

This is very strange. A few weeks ago someone in my household created a user account with administrative privileges and changed the other accounts to standard users. Problem is that now we can not log on to the account. It isn't on the log in screen. All I can do it see it through the manage accounts option in the control panel. From here I can attempt to add a password among other things. Since the account I do have access to is standard. What I want to do is, get on the account or get rid of the account. I need administrative privileges on an account I can access. Why can't I see this account on the log in screen?

A:Weird account problem Admin account not at login screen

Hello and welcome Chas mate I would find the culprit and recover the password for that account from whoever it is and change the admin back to what it was previously.

Now given you state it is someone within your household I am thinking this person or persons need a good talking to if that person is still there of course if not then you have a problem.

I don't think even a system restore will do it either.

The alternative is to back up all your data and reinstall.

We have a new dell business computer (don't have model with me now, but its an optiplex with serial and ps2 ports in the back, purchased a few months ago with i5 processor + 8 gigs ram) and our hard drive went bad and dell replaced it. Then a little later we had an issue with our windows genuine activation saying its not genuine when we had windows 7 and it blocked the admin account on the sign in screen (only account). Meaning you can't do anything, there are no other options, no option to enter key code or make genuine or anything like that. 
So I reinstalled Windows 7 (Dell CD) + downloaded drivers (except sata drivers which it didn't show it needed in device manager and I was pushed to finish quickly) from dell  today, thought all was well. It showed genuine and activated, etc... 
Employee upgraded to windows 10. Guess what? The login screen when you turn on the computer has once again blocked the admin account which is the only account. What is going on and how do I fix it? This is ridiculous. I can't even login to try to fix it.

Since I am sharing some of these folders, I wish to undo this and no longer make them private.

Hi - just wondering if there's a way to make changes in one user account automatically reflect in another user account?

Maybe there's a regedit or something that would accomplish this?

This is probably an outcome of brain fade, but I can't figure out how to do this -

I want my wireless machines to be able to access my desktop/hub without having to login (in other words, automatically login)

I have 1 desktop that acts as a hub/server with the cable/router/printer/phone all hard-wired in. It's running Vista.

I have 2 laptops (XP Home), and 2 desktops (Vista and 2000) that connect wirelessly for printer access and file sharing.

The connection to the network and finding the desktop is automatic, but to print or share files I have to manually login and enter user and password. All of the users and passwords are reflected on the respective machines (ie: the user for laptop 1 is also a user on the desktop and passwords are the same.)

How do I configure so that the wireless machines automatically connect for printing without logging in?

I know it can be as for the last year my wife's laptop did it automatically while I've always had to login. I re-installed Windows a few months ago and now we all have to login (she's not happy ) The desktop is currently set to require users to login wiht password, but it's always been set up like that and previously she was able to bypass that, so that shouldn't affect anything.

I get the error "The password is incorrect. Try again". 
I am certain that the credentials are just fine, if I choose the option sign in with different user and I use the same domain account with the same credentials it will log on into my account.
I tried to remote the computer form the domain and rejoin the computer again, but no luck. Does anyone has a solution for this?

When I choose different user and login with my account, it will logon normally. When I restart my computer it will show the last logged in account, so when I give my credentials I get the error again; "The password is incorrect. Try again".

What do you mean "choose different user and login with my account"? Do you mean logon to the account in another PC or just click "another user"?
Have you tried to logon to the domain account in another pc, then change the password, then test this issue again.

I am Arun Kumar Kushwaha and I have discovered one Big Loophole/Security Leak in Microsoft's Windows 7 Operating System worldwide.
through which we can Access/Delete/Copy/Replace Important Data without Cracking/Resetting the Login Password in Windows 7 OS
and for this we not need any 3rd party Software/ CD/ DVD/ Pen drive/ CMD/ Script/ or any other means of hacking Devices/tool.

only through Windows 7 OS we can Access anybodies Computer Around the world, and user will never get to know that his/her computer has accessed by someone else.
This is purely Microsoft's Negligence towards user's Around the world.

U can assume how much serious is this Issue, if anybody can steal confidential Important data of Company/ Govt data/ or any other Sensitive Personal data of anyone who are using windows 7 OS.

I have Talked through telephone to MS India regarding this Issue and they told me that there is no loophole in their OS and can't be accessed by anyone without having Login Password or User need to Reset login Password with tool/software available.

also i have mailed to MS Technical support Team and also asked about this issue on Windows worldwide official support forum, but not get any meaning full response from them.

I am asking this message to here, coz i want to Spread this issue around the world, so every user can secure their Data and also MS can rectify this issue by releasing an OS Update.

I did a complete factory restore but he set it up to open with his hotmail user account on the "Lock Screen" in Windows 8.1, but he did give me his how hotmail email address and password so I can login. Well, within about two months later he had all the same issues back again and so he just quit using the laptop completely.

He gave it back to me and I cleaned everything up again (without doing a factory recovery) and also upgraded it from the original Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

Everything is working perfectly, it's very fast now and I love it.

Only issue I can see is if he (my grandson) deletes or changes his hotmail account I won't be able to login and also his emails are available for me to read (but I don't) and I don't use his email account. I use a webmail account of my own.

As I mentioned earlier, this laptop is running and set up perfectly for me with this one exception.

Without doing a complete factory recover, how can I chnage this laptop from requiring his (my grandsons) hotmail address and password to no login being required at all (as I am the only user now) or to run with a local account (as I believe it is referred to)?

If you avoid/don't have/don't use the usual Windows apps like Outlook, Hotmail, Edge, Xbox, Cloud, etc, is there any point in having your laptop auto log in to your Microsoft Account? Can the auto log in be disabled so you can log in when you want to without closing the account?

ok,i just installed the internet and set up remote desktop for my grandfather who is overseas,he is 87 years old so he is too old to be clever on PCs.
Because he really have a problem to connect on the internet (not very clever with the mouse and clicking) i wanted to set up ADSL internet to connect automaticly on windows startup,also i wanted to make auto-logon so he doesnt have to type password to log in on to computer,so i can have a full control after he switch on the computer.
Ok,i set up the ADSL to autoconnect puting it in the windows start up folder and i also set up the ADSL to not ask for the pass and user.After that i went to START-RUN and than i have typed "CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2" and uncheck the checkbox that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer." and uncheck that "ctrl+alt+delete" box.
Than i have restarted the computer but i couldnt log on again,than i made a phone call to my grandfather and ask him to tell me what he can see on the computer screen and than he told to me it says "The system could not log you on make sure your User name and domain are correct then type your password again..." bla bla.
And whatever key he press on the pc keyboard it just bleeps.I said to him to just press ENTER to log in,because i made the password to be no password,so the password was blank and he can just press enter to log in.But nothing happen,it just bleeps.There is posibility that he can not see cle...

i can't seem to figure out this issue. Basically i have 2 icons one for the last logged on user or one that says other user. if i try to click either nothing happens. i can log in fine under safe mode but in safe mode i don't need to click the icon. Under
safe mode it just needs the password.
i have tried to restore several restore points but they seem to blue screen. I also tried to start windows without loading startup items and disabling non-microsoft services. I also tried running chkdsk and updating the gpu driver.
any other things to try?

I have a problem. I create a new account and try to login and get the error: service user profile service prevents logging and also user profile can not been loaded. Can someone help to login?

A:Can not login in the new account

The TUTORIAL written for Win8/8.1 is long and complex, and there is no guarantee that it will solve the problem after all.

Since you have not even started using this new account, I would strongly suggest that you just simply delete it > create another user account.

If you want to remove the Login Screen here's how
Click Start>Run and type in the following "control userpasswords2",
without the quotation marks then click OK. The User Accounts dialog
box will open, uncheck the box that says, "Users must enter a user name
and password to use this computer".Click OK and reboot you should not see
the welcome screen that requires you to logon.
