Windows 7: Always getting log in screen

Always getting log in screen

This has been bugging me for some time now so I finally decided to post. When I start my computer up it always stops at the login screen asking for a password and I do not have a password so all I do is click enter on my keyboard and it finishes booting me into Windows 7 so how can I get rid of this and have it boot right into Windows 7??

Run (Win+R): netplwiz
Then uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"

See if this helps

Hmm, try option two in the tutorial:
Log On Automatically at Startup

No help. All that did is add another box I had to enter computername\user to log in.

I wonder if it's the Guest account interfering, are you using it for anything? Do you mind disabling it?

I looked up how to do that and after right click on my computer then properties I seen my computer was part of a network workgroup so I changed that to home computer and it works now. Thanks GokAy for helping me figure it out.

Interesting, thanks for sharing Good job, I wasn't aware such setting would affect the availability of the checkbox.

Can you elaborate on what you did please?
- Was it set as Public and you changed it to Home?
- or changed it to Homegroup?
