When windows boots up it ask to log into the notebook. I have only one user on the computer, so I would like it so that it just boots into that one user instead of asking for a password . Is that possible?

Are you talking about the Windows Logon Screen password or your Notebook's password?

If it is Windows logon password. You have to go to control panel and double click on the user accounts icon.

There you will see your icon and possibly Guest account.

Double click your Icon and look for the password area, the object is to rename the password and do not put anything in where it asks for new password. Leave it blank.

Click apply and exit.

If you are talking about the Notebook's logon password (before Windows loads) Then I have no answers.

But you could post some information regarding your notebooks brand and model number, so others can assist you better.

Best regards.

You can also change a little-known setting that still keeps your password, but doesn't require you to enter it on log-in (it will be automatic).

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vis...-automatically/

But the same affect is achieved (automatic login). If you want anybody to have access to your computer (automatic login, which is a bad idea), then the best option would be to have a blank password. The reason for this is that if you have a password and don't require it to be entered (like in the tutorial), you will likely forget it, and could possibly lock yourself out forever. :huh:

But like MrBruce1959 said, if you are talking about the "system password" in the BIOS, that is another story all together. It will require disabling in the BIOS.

You do realize the ramifications of such actions don't you? I would highly recommend using a password for any and all accounts.

Like I said above, it's a bad idea to not have a password. :huh:
