Hope this helps,
This was massively important for me to read! I have a network that may allow for possible security risks, but being the only user of my computer and working down the list found here: Optimize Windows 7
I decided to turn off my password...
...then I found this step in the list shortly afterwards. Kind of funny, and so I followed the steps to allow automatic log-in, but what I am going to do now is make sure I create a password for my administrator account again to provide added security over the network.
