Hello I just wanted to ask if anyone has every lost their password for Windows. I have one different screen name and password but I don't remember the password. The only way I find to eliminate this problem is to have the old password . I just want one desktop so that that little Login-In screen doesn't come up any more It's rather annoying , since I'm the only one that uses the computer anyway and Windows loads much faster.
Any information will be very much appreciated.
Thank you

you can go to FIND, type *.PWL and then delete that file....but once you do, you will get the dial up networking box to show up the first time you try to connect to the net that you will have to fill in again with your password, and check 'remember password' and also 'automatically connect'. (Also, if you delete the .pwl file you will lose any passwords that you have for any documents or folders or other files you may have password protected so make sure you know what those are ahead of time in order to get access to your files again) Once you reboot the computer, you will get the log in window again, but this time only type in a username if yours doesn't already show up, and click OK and then click OK again without entering a password. Now right click the Network Neighborhood icon, choose Properties, and use the down arrow to show 'windows logon' or 'family logon' depending on what you have for choices, and then reboot the computer....

Thanks to everyone for their help
But I kind of found out how to do it on my own
Through the registry.
You guys are great.
Method I used:
start\run\regedit\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\identities
Highlight ex. ([email protected]##[email protected]$%^) then on right hand side
highlight username that you want to delete . right click & delete.
It worked.:)
