On startup there is a numeric on screen keypad, in the top left on screen the owner enters the 4 digit pin and all is well but she want to get rid of it and have no login password.

 

I am not sure if its even a win 8 product as it doesn't look like it belongs on the screen.

I have been into Accounts / Sign options / the screen has the PIN sign in quickly with a four digit number but doesn't have the Remove button as an option.

 

Not wanting to add another pin i haven't taken it any further.

 

Have run Kaspersky Rescue disk found nothing, MBAM found some PUP's and Adaware  found some more. All removed.

Sorted:

 
In the run box type 'control userpasswords2' and untick the 'users must enter a username and password' option, type in the password and bob's your uncle.

I believe it's from the OEM manufacturer of your system.

What make is your system?

Can't find anything with a search of the internet.

You might try searching for the owner's manual for that model to see what it says.

I'll be at work tomorrow and will have a look there to see if I can find it.
