Try using the command line: Type CMD in the search box Right click run as Administrator and type:
net user username ""
Username being the account you want to blank the password on.

Although we do not give tutorials on password cracking here at Bleeping Computer, search for "Offline Windows Password and Registry Editor" and look at the tutorials.

I don't want to crack any password. I did it on Windows Vista by entering pasword and then a blank - nothing - for the new password. Why won't Windows 7 do this?

Click on the WIndows "Start" orb and click your profile picture at the top of the menu [alternatively go to "Control Panel" and click User Accounts]. Note I'm using Windows 7 and not Vista. In Windows 7, after exercising of the two options to get to the User Accounts window, you may see, like I do in Windows 7, a link to "Remove Password" and you do so by typing the current password which, if I understand correctly, you know. You simply just want to go back to turning on your own computer without having to enter your own password each time. As I said, I'm using Windows 7, so Vista might have a different link you have to click while in User Accounts. User Accounts is where you can change user picture for example along with creating new accounts. Vista should have means to remove a password there to any account or accounts on your computer if you are in Administrator mode. I hope this helps and that I've understood the issue. God Bless...

Normally changing your own password does not require UAC (at lease in windows 7) so if restarting your computer, and trying the command prompt way doesn't work, you may have to crack the password.
