Preferred Solution: how do you stop windows 10 password requirement

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.)

Hi, I have a client who JUST about got nailed by the little b******s that push a fake virus page to you then give you a number to call etc etc. 
They called me JUST as they were ALSO on the phone with the scammer, and I got them to hang up before any serious damage could be done...especially to their VISA card!
However, the little buggers managed to put a start up password in Windows BEFORE you get to the users/login screen. This is where the fortunate part comes in. The client was WATCHING AND PAYING ATTENTION! (I know! How rare is that???)
The password used was 'inbound'.
So to use the computer, all you have to do is put in the password 'inbound' and you get to the login screen. 
The faker created a homegroup and a hidden homegroup admin account for himself. I got rid of the homegroup and that user, but try as I might, I can't find out where you go to get rid of that password requirement. 
Any ideas?

A:Getting rid of Win7 Startup Password requirement when you know the password!

Is the password box the same as what is shown on this page.That would be a System password that can be removed by copying the System   (Sam) Hive from the Regback folder of C:\Windows\System32\config\Regback. 
 
First option is to do a System Restore . Edit: It should be SAM hive. Sorry.
 
Second would be to use a live linux disk to rename the System Hive in C:\Windows\System32\config\ and copy the one from Regback. This would only work if the date on the System Hive in Regback is before the problem began.
 
Edit: There is a file on the page but I have never downloaded it or used it. I suggest you at least scan it with Virustotal if you wish to use it to disable the password box.

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.

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.

A few days ago an on screen message said words to the effect that Windows had encountered a problem and needed to close. The system cycled through a diagnostic sequence - an attempt at repair - eventually closed down. When rebooted followed much the same sequence.

I tried using a Windows Repair Disc, which opened up several repar options, but all eventually led back to the on-screen message - Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close down.

The system was restored using an external hard drive with a copy of system image. However, when the system is booted - within seconds a box appears on screen asking for a password to be entered. When the password is entered the boot continues without a hitch and Windows 10 works as normal.

The introduction of a password could well be something that I stumbled into whilst trying to solve the initial problem - I cannot honestly recall - but I would appreciate guidance as to how to eliminate this step from the boot process.

Hi all
My daughter gave me her old Vista computer and it requires me to enter a password when booting, I have the password and can enter it no problems but I don't want to have to enter it every time I turn the computer on, I want to be able to turn it on and come back later when it's booted and ready to go the same as I have always done on my XP machines. So is there a way of removing the requirement to enter the password? I have the existing password and full admin rights so I can change anything needed to remove the password requirement.
Thanks in advance for all help received.

A:How do I change the requirement to enter the password when booting the computer?

Logon Automatically


Press WinKey+R or click on Start then Run, enter control userpasswords2 and press Enter or click OK.Check the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox then click Apply. If it's already checked, skip to step 3.Select the user you want to be automatically logged on by clicking on it.Uncheck the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox then click Apply.
When you do this another window will open with the userid you selected showing (you can enter a different one if the wrong one is showing). Enter the password if there is one, leave blank otherwise. Click OK and you're done. Next boot, the userid you selected should be automatically logged on.

Or, since you don't care about passwords, just remove the password from Control Panel, User Accounts.

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

Do we keep our passwords on boot or sleep mode to prevent a hacker getting onto a network and then finding your mac address so as to access your machine?

Is that the only reason we have it?

(Also for the other reason that if you left your machine unattended or for privacy but my question is more for anti-hackers).

If the answer to the question is no then i might undo my one....

A:Does a windows password "stop hackers"

The password and MAC address are independent and unrelated.

If your PC is connected to a network (and the network card has power) your MAC address is available for functions like "wake on LAN".

Your password only "prevents" (reduces the chances of) unauthorized access to your user account.

I have an older Gateway Performance 1300 desktop that I inherited. There is a password on it that has to be put in before it will even go to setup. I assume it is a computer password rather than an XP password (running XP Home SP3) but I can find no way to turn it off. In the setup, it says supervisor password uninstalled, user password installed, and below it has places to put in both passwords. I guess if it is the user password, I could change it, but I see no way to turn it off. No one else uses the computer and there is no need for this password, it is just an aggravation.

Any help on how to turn it off would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:How do I stop using a password

Do you have the owner/user manual?

You could also go here:

and enter the serial number on the back of the case. You may be able to download a manual there.

That model is over 10 years old, you may have difficulty finding support documentation.

The basic approach would be to reset the BIOS/CMOS jumper pin on the motherboard, IMO.

I would like epu to just start without asking me the permission nor password.

please help me

thx a lot

Every other time I've installed Windows I haven't had this problem.
But I just installed Windows 8 on this laptop.
And now I'm trying finish setting it up. But every time I want to install something or run some kind of administrative tool like Firewall it asks me for my password.
On any other account I've ever used I just get a pop up saying "This app wants to run." Then I click ok or cancel.
How do I make it like that instead of having to type my password every time?

really losing my patience on this one, so any help would be greatly appreciated ...
XP Pro SP3 on DELL Dimension 4550
Ive been googling and for the most part see the same suggestion offered as a fix:

"right click desktop – properties – screen saver tab – power button – change monitor and hard drive turn off to the desired time period"

as well as this for the password issue:

"Log on to your computer as an administrator. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. - Click Performance and Maintenance. - Click Power Options. - Click Advanced tab. - Under “Options” section, uncheck the check box for Prompt for password when computer resume from standby opton."

ive seen this suggested over and over and have applied the steps in both my limited account and in the admin account. still keeps doing the same thing.
• I'd like to note that i saw one thing mentioned that i have not tried because i wasnt sure how to proceed.
i saw someone mention the power management settings in the BIOS. BUT when i entered the BIOS, i wasnt sure what might be safe to change / disable / etc.,etc...
any other thoughts ideas / tips?
thanks all

P.S.
this is a work computer so i apologize if i dont update or reply right away

Hey guys

My parents want me to put fliters on the family computer because we foster, so how do i make a limited account disable password creation but still allow for applications to be installed?(they are not smart enough to crack a password with software)

Any ideas? thanks in advance .

A:How do i stop password creation on a limited account etc..

Are you running Windows XP Professional or Home? If you are running Pro, I suppose making them Power User accounts but setting the "User cannot change password" option should work.

Hi

Will the hacker still get into the computer system, if I change the computer password to get into the computer, if a virus has already probably taken the login passwords for the emails and other accounts, and if so, will changing those passwords make those accounts safe, or will the virus already have a reset password program in it.

If anyone can help me please.

I'm working on building an image of a windows xp pro machine to deploy to approx 800 machines in a windows NT4 network. By default every time a new person logs in it creates a new profile, and in this profile under the power settings it is set to prompt for password after the PC resumes. How can I set it so that option is not set by default for all new users.

When I start up, the computer seems to be typing by itself, filling the password field over and over.  Sometime this occurs in the address bar and other field, and asterisks appear by the dozens/hundreds.  While this is happening the mouse seems to be disabled.  It's hard to explain it's very frustrating.  Can anyone help?

When the password window appears on startup, it immediately fills with dots. I can remove them by backspacing then deleting. How do I stop it from happening?

A:How do I stop password window from filling up with dots?

Feels like your keyboard is malfunctioning.
That its in somekind of loop during bootup. Try with another keyboard.

Or do the super-duper solution. Reset your CMOS Its the big round battery on your mobo. Just jank that out, wait 5-10 sec, plug it back in.
That should erase any unwanted actions from the bootup.

If its a desktop, kinda hard to do that on a laptop. And if you havent done it before, use caution and google how to. Never start fiddeling in a open computercase if you havent done it before.
