How can I remove windows 7 log in password? Please help.......

Dear members,
I am very new in this forum. Recently I have been trying to remove my windows 7 log in password. But every time I try to remove my password from control panel, a popup window appears saying that
Quote:
Windows can not remove the password. Password and/or account policies require the account to have a password.
Could you help me out there? I have read a lot of tutorial to auto login the windows 7 . But what I want is to remove the windows password. The account I have been running is probably the administrator account. Hope I could find some help...

Thanks
