    in Windows 2000, how can I disabilitate the option of entering the password everytime I switch on the PC? I'd like that there was no user option and that at the start up, it would straightly go to windows without any password required.
    thank u and I hope I was clear enough

    Open up COntrol Panel and then double click on users and passwords. Highlight the username that you want Windows 2000 to automatically log in as. Now at the top you'll see where it says Users must enter a username and password to use this computer. Make sure the box in front of it is unchecked. Now click apply and a windows will open asking you for a password. Enter the username and the password for the account that you want Windows 2000 to log in automatically and then hit ok and now everytime you restart windows 2000 you will automatically be logged in as the user. To test it out just restart your computer and it should log you in automatically.

    thank you but unfortunately I tried to do in my own way before reading this advice and now the result is that I dont succeed to enter in windows anymore!
    I have erased a couple of users from the users list and now it gives me the same panel of enter the password but this time it sais that the password is wrong, how can I solve this problem?
    Can I do something from the BIOS?
    thank you

    If you have a BIOS password set and you forgot the password you can reset it by clearing the CMOS. You do that by removing a jumper on your motherboard to clear the password. Read your motherboard intructions on how to do that and what jumper clears the CMOS.

    If it's a Windows 2000 logon password that you changed and now can't remember what you changed it to then you have a problem. I know theirs a password hack on the internet but you'll need to find thatout for yourself because we are not permitted to tell you how do it but there's a way.

    Even if none is permitted to tell how to hack, then I'll put it in a different way: how can I run an utility if I can't enter in my OS???
    thanks

    the utility for the password has to be runned before windows logs. Since you're computer is not booting now then it's no longer a password problem.
