    It would appear quite simple to remove the need for a windows 7 password at login

    one user on the PC and she does not want it to ask for a password
    so she logs into the PC
    control panel > users >
    sees here user account

    remove password option

    she can click on that and the password is removed

    now when she boots up the PC - it nolonger asks for a password

    just checking thats correct - before i do it for a friend !!!!!!

    and no problems likely - i understand the layer of security she is removing - but its a desktop , so not a laptop out and and about


    thanks

    Thanks Derek,
    I assume thats reliable - I dont want to suggest a method and have the user locked out or a problem on the PC
