Windows 7: Login Screen Appears with no password and one account

Login Screen Appears with no password and one account

I have two machines that I've installed Windows 7 Professional 32-bit on and I'm having the same problem on both. When I turn on my computer it goes to the login welcome screen and stops. I have to click on my picture for it to continue logging into the desktop. I have no password and only one admin account set up on either one. I tried setting up the auto login using netplwiz in the search bar but it doesn't do anything. I set up a password and set up the autologin and it didn't work on either machine. So now I'm back to no password and in need of help. Anyone got any ideas?

Sounds like you cancelled.

You should have been presented a pop-up asking you to enter a password and to confirm the password. Enter a valid password or a lame one, like PASSWORD.

This is the procedure for bypassing the log in screen.
