Disable 'Log on' Password

Hi folks,
First of all, I entered a password for my account, then I entered ' netplwiz ' in the start menu. I then removed the tick from, 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'. I can now 'Sign In' without a p/w when starting or rebooting my PC. I know some of you have used this,
If you have, now go to start menu and instead of clicking 'restart', click 'Log off ' When done, you will be asked for your p/w. This is the one I would like to disable, can you help ?.

You could just get rid of the password on your acccount. It doesn't sound like you're using it anyways

Hi ie9, a password is required for file sharing. (network based)

Hi Ztruker, the setting was already selected.

AH, I don't think you can get rid of that prompt after you do a logoff.

Do you have more than one account? Why do you logoff?
