W7 signing in procedure

Right now it is necessary to enter a password to get into the system and if I forget it there is no way to start the system.

Is there a way to set this up in a different manner.

Thanks

That's easy - don't forget your password!

Type Win+R, control userpasswords2. Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".

you could also make a password restore/reset disk.

in the Run box that comes up after you hit Win+R

Type:

control userpasswords2 [press ENTER]

or

netplwiz [press ENTER]

Same difference..

Thank you all for your answers, especially Shawn.

I like your little blub on the bottom of the posts.
