Preferred Solution: How do I disable the sign-in requirement for Windows 10?

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.)

I don't have to sign in when starting the computer. No problem there.

But after having a clean re-install of Windows 10 (Anniversary Upgrade), (after having an SSD installed) I now have a picture of a tree trunk. To get rid of that I press the Space Bar. Then I get a stylised shape representing the place for a user picture, then below that the name of the computer, and below that a rectangular box with "Sign in". I have to move the mouse pointer to that box and click. After all that fuss I see my Desktop. None of that happened before the SSD and the Windows 10 + Anniv. Upgrade was installed.

I have done Settings > Sign-in options > followed by a list of irrelevant things: Windows Hello, Password, PIN, Picture password, Privacy. Nothing about signing in.

Following a tenforums tutorial I pressed Windows key+R and entered netplwiz, I unchecked "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Under that is my computer name and under "Group" is "Administrator". I pressed OK and got "Password for [computer name] and "To change a password, press Cterl-Alt-Del and select change"password. I don't have, want or need a password. I am the sole user and administrator of this machine.

I therefore pressed OK and nothing happens.

I have had no luck with other tenforums tutorial options nor Internet pages offering a solution. I am not keen to fiddle with the Registry - too dangerous for me.

I am still stuck... Read more

However, everytime that I start my computer from my morning bootup, the Signon Window has the deleted User, Nathon.
I have to type in Jack, for the new user, and I get into Jacks Account.

Why is Windows not remembering that I have deleted the USER, Nathon?

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for a solution to a problem which started to occur today.

Last night I was prompted by Windows to do some updates, after they had finished my computer shut down normally. When I booted my computer today I was greeted by the BSOD with the following error code:

Stop: c000021a. The initial session process ... terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000428 0x000106a0).

Windows is unable to repair the problem, I can't boot in safe mode (with or without network, cmd or otherwise) and Windows can't find any recovery points to recover the system to, nor can I boot the computer from the last known working configuration. After some frustration I tried every option from the advanced boot menu, and lo and behold, the computer booted when I booted in disabled driver signature enforcement mode.

The computer seems to work fine in this mode. I ran sigverif.exe and it found one driver that was not signed, a driver used by Daemon tools lite (can't remember the name). The driver was signed, but still my computer wouldn't boot normally, so I tried to remove Daemon tools (hence why I can't remember the name), but the computer still won't boot normally.

Windows keeps telling me that I have three important updates to update, but I can't seem to update them. The updates are KB3067903 and KB3065987, but I have no idea if they are connected to the issue.

I am attaching a screenshot from dxdiag and from the DM log collector, if you need anything... Read more

So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

Hi, I have a Nextpad device that comes with Windows 10 installed on it. I did not yet install any user application on it, and the File Explorer reports that it has about 16G out of a total 28G disk space available. Now Windows Update has found the Windows 10 Fall Update and will try to download and install it, but I stopped it because I worry about the disk space.

So my question is: is the 16G free space enough? I know that the Fall Update install will try to back up the original Windows 10 first, and that will take a lot of disk space (my guess here is that the 12G space used is all used by the system and will be backed up, and that only leaves me 4G left, which might not even be enough for downloading the Fall Update). Even though I would be able to remove the previous Windows after a successful installation of Fall Update, I worry the update will fail (and leave the device in an unusable state) during the installation due to insufficient disk space.

So what should I do? I know I can insert a MicroSD card to increase the storage capacity, but numerous articles have indicated that the presence of such card will cause the Fall Update to stall and fail.

Thanks very much for your help!

A:What is the Disk Space Requirement for Windows 10 Fall Update?

Rather then allowing windows update to download the upgrade to your HDD ( uses about 5GB of space)
Download the windows 10 ISO > http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench
Right-click the ISO and burn to a removable USB drive..
Delete the ISO file or copy it to another location other then your small HDD
Now you can run the upgrade from the usb drive by running setup.exe

besides having the setup files on your small HDD, you would also need room for the windows.old folder..
So having the files on usb helps with needed space..

Hey all! I was looking to buy a "netbook" from HP around the first of the year, but I had one concern when it came to memory / OS compatibility. There are two options for OS:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

There are also 3 different memory options:
1GB DDR3 System Memory
2GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)
3GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)

Now, if I were to select XP as my OS, the only option it lets me select is 1gb. If I were to select Windows 7, I'm able to select any of the 3 options. When having XP with 2 or 3 GB selected, it says:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3 requires 1GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm). Update Memory or Operating system .

Not sure what's going on here. I think 1 Dimm just means it takes up 1 slot. But, why would I not be able to have XP and 2/3 GB? To my knowledge, HP isn't correct?

Just wondering, because I want to select XP with 3GB. I have Windows 7 professional through my work, so I don't want to drop $30 on an OS I won't use. I kinda want to upgrade the memory through HP because 1) they install it so it's on them, and 2) it's only $65 for 3gb. Pretty good price, I think

Does anybody know anything about this? To my knowledge I shouldn't have a problem having ANY of these memories with EITHER operating system, but according to their website, it has to be one or the other.

Thanks

After having done the update, I'm having two issues that are bugging me:

1. I cannot change the lock screen from the "cave by the shore" default nor bypass it (Brink is working on the bypass issue I believe)

2. If I go into netplwiz and uncheck the need for a password, the "Welcome" screen has the system default user picture, that drawing of a circle over an arch, not the picture I assigned to the account. With the need for a password, the picture on both the sign-in screen and "Welcome" screen is correct tho.

The lock screen issue I can live with since I normally don't use a password, but the default user picture is bugging me. I went into %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and replaced all the default pictures with ones the same name and size of the picture that I have for the account, but it still shows the default.

I've searched around for another place where the default picture is, but cannot find any, even with the search including hidden system files.

Anybody know where the system default user pictures are stored, other than in the User Account Pictures?

Hey everyone

Every now and then my Windows 8.1 x64 shows the first sign-in sequence after a restart. I noticed it most recently happened after a normal Start->Power Options->Restart. I'm quite sure it has also happened after right clicking on start button (Control-X) and restarting from there, as well as from a custom shortcut I have for restart (shutdown.exe /r /t 00).

I had just finished installing IBM SPSS 22 for a class I'm taking, but I think this is unrelated.
It goes through the whole "Setting Up Your PC" and "Installing your apps" screens even though its perfectly fine and and all my data including app data is still there. See the attached file for an example of what was most noticeably shown.

With another incident, something similar to this happened but it actually reset some of my settings for things like MediaMonkey, Connectify Hotspot, GOM Player and VLC player. It was like they had been started for the first time ever with no license information or preferences like Always on Top.

Its not a matter of urgency but I keep worrying that one day it will actually mess with my system in a very annoying way.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

A:x1950 Pro PSU requirement

A short answer no. ATI says a min of 450W with at least 30amp on the 12V rail for that card. It looks like you are running a prescott cpu. If that is correct, then I would go with a min of 550W and 35amp on the 12V rail.

Why can't you recover with the F11 key? Did you change the partitions or delete the recovery partition? Did you create a usb recovery flashdrive? Can you get access to a Windows 10 usb installer?If the answer is no, but you have access to another Windows PC, you can make your own. You will need it to create a usb installer that will let you use Windows system restore to roll your notebook back to before the even that caused the issue. See the tutorial on the following web page.http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-download-install-windows-10-iso/

Hi everybody,

For the last several days, I've been doing a lot of research about whether my power supply can support my graphics card, but I can't seem to find a definate answer. What I have is a 450 watt power supply; it has one single 12v rail that provides 24 amps. My graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E. It requires a 450 watt power supply and recommends 30 amps on the 12v rail.

When I asked whether my PSU can support my graphics card on other forums, some people tell me it can, but others tell me it can't, so I'm really confused right now. I had my X1950 hooked up and running for 3 days without having any problem, but I took it out today, just to be safe until I can get a definate answer. Although I do notice that my power supply runs cooler without the X1950 hooked up.

But on other forums, I even heard people run this card on a 18 amp 12v rail without any problem and they even have it running on a fully loaded system with 2x HDD, 2x DVD Drive, cooling system, fans and lights. And many people say that 22 amps should be the minimum to this card and 24 amps should be fine. However, there are also people who say that you should follow the manufacturers recommendation and get a minimum 30 amps power supply.

To give you a better idea of my system, here are the specs.
Pentium 4 HT 524 Prescott 3.06 GHZ (84 watt)
Motherboard: ATI RC410 ULI M1573
2 stick of DDR2 Ram 1x 1GB and 1x 512MB
1x Samsung Writemaster DVD RW
1x SATA 250GB Western Digital H... Read more

I plan to edit movies from my cam DV. I like the HD Western Digital Raptor 36GB 10 k rpm ( fast...), but if I load my windows XP pro on that drive it will take a good slice of that 36 GB. what is left would be enought to load my movie & edit it?
thanks
 

A:GB requirement for editing cam DV movie

Two things:
1. YOu dont want to load video onto the same drive that houses your applications--you want a seperate capture drive just for video.
2. Don't waste your time or money on the 10,000 rpm drive. It will make no difference in terms of quality or reliability when editing DV. Also, 36 gig's is nothing when it comes to video. Get yourself a large 7200rpm 8mbcache drive--they are cheap these days.

I am assisting my friend who had Vista on a computer and his sod bought him a Dell with Windows 8:
1- I am unable to remove password from sign-on. There appears to be no instruction as in Win 7/Vista.
2- Picture icons when transferred show only a general icon not an icon of the pictures as in Vista.
3- My friend accidentally removed the icon for the Instructions/ for Win 8 on the Start Menu. I cannot find the file for us to revie.
4- When I try to Create a Password Reset disk, the program asks for a password reset disk disk and password to be installed? Huh.
I am not a novice. Using computers since the Apple II

If a drive is encrypted with BitLocker and you choose to not require any form of pre-boot authentication the system will simply boot and unlock when you login.

If you encrypt a computer with BitLocker and chose to set a PIN, is there any way to later retract the pre-boot PIN requirement and revert back to the scenario above without first decrypting and re-encrypting?
I've looked at the various options via manage-bde and tested a few such as:
manage-bde -protectors -delete C: -Type TPMAndPIN
Unfortunately this simply removed the simple PIN and instead requires the recovery key. Using the same command to delete the recovery key breaks the system.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:Remove BitLocker PIN Requirement

Apologies for replying to an old-ish question but I believe I have a solution.
Assuming any group policy changes relating to BitLocker PINs have been reset,  enter the command
manage-bde -protectors -add C: -tpm. This will reconfigure BitLocker into using just the TPM and delete the PIN as well.
If you run manage-bde -status and look under Key Protectors you should see Numerical Password (ie the recovery key) and either TPM on a system that does not use a PIN, or TPM And PIN on a system that does. If you try to remove the PIN by just removing the
TPM and PIN key protector the only means of unlocking the drive available is Numerical Password, causing you to be prompted for the recovery key at every boot. You have to specifically tell BitLocker to use just the TPM instead, it wont automatically default
to this setting.

Hello anyone/everyone,
Not sure if this is the correct forum but I'll try.
Some how I got tied into something that requires me to log in with a password when I restart my system after a shut down. The system starts with the logo of a saki bottle, white, ceramic "kitty" with one paw upraised and below is a block for a password. Dell denies requiring anyone to have a password to log on but, I'm stuck with the password requirement. I don't know how I got it but I would like not to have to enter a password.
Any help will be appreciated.
Jim
