No you don't.  However, making this change may cause issues with configuration that you have already done for your user account.

To do with same subject>>>when I first set up pc, because my name, or initial was in my password, I had to call my account using my wife's name, so all got complicated.


I am the only one who uses my pc, and is ever likely to, that's why, I don't want password floating around, but I was told, as pc was set up with wife's name, it cant be changed, but if I don't have to log on, that's not a problem.


I have a sneaky feeling, that if I did not shutdown correctly, when restarting, I can be asked for password??, this sound right?
