    Select to change account then select the account and chenge password. Enter the current password and for the new on e do not enter any.

    The other option would be to download tweak ui and in the logon section select auto logon.

    Something else to check would be to right click on the desktop /properties/ screensaver tab and uncheck the box for password on resume.

    okay i found what did finally work ...


    1. Go to Start/Run and type in: control userpasswords2 and press ok.

    2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To
    Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

    3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name
    and password for the account you want to be logged on each time you start
    your computer.
