Windows 7: Reinstate logon password? (I do know the password)

Reinstate logon password? (I do know the password)

Firstly apologies if this is not in the correct section.

A while ago I altered the logon process to no longer require a password whenever I started this computer (Windows 7 Home Premium).

I have since regretted doing that and would like to reinstate it.

I do know the password and have Administrator rights but have no idea how to go about this despite asking good old Google.

Could one of you kind folk help please?

Great

On this site there are lots and lots of great Tutorials, and this simple Google trick can help you find them much easier. Example to search for the words log on but you add another search term to only show results from Tutorials at sevenforums:

I'm sure you'll find that useful in the future
