    I really need help. I have to walk over to my boss' computer and input the password every time he needs to connect to my computer. This is wasting a lot of time I need to be proficient.

    Can somebody help me out?

    Thank you for trying, but that did not work. I think I have figured out why the option isn't available to me.

    My computer is connected to a LAN File Server which is also set up to be a Domain Controller. I didn't think about it at first but, being logged into a domain changes local user login settings (in XP: having to press ctrl-alt-del every login, etc) even if you are not on a domain account. With Win7, I have no idea how it operates on a DC

    Anyways, I don't mind having to input a blank password (this is how everyone elses Win XP computer is set up, which happened when we implemented a domain). But I have Password complexity requirements disallowing a blank password. I know you can change the password complexity on server 2003 (yeah im not up to date :P), but since I'm on a local profile I'm uncertain if it would even be effective.

    My guess is I need to change the password complexity requirements in Windows 7. I don't have to worry about security, for everyone at work uses this computer regularly and knows the password.

    *edit*
    The guy at my work can easily log into the server and change any setting
    Since your machine appears to be part of a Domain, the blank password requirements will be very hard (if not impossible) to remove from the Domain.

    I would suggest that since you don't mind putting a blank password; that you enter a simple password that complies with the domain policy for passwords, and share the password with your boss so that he can enter it anytime he wants.

    Make yourself as administrator by going into
    Start->Run->control userpasswords2 , and then under properties make yourself as administator and then the option will be enabled for you

    Will task manager run with no password?


    I am a 1 user home account, with no log in password (so log in is faster). It seems that Syncback won't run schedules though task manager, because it requires a password. Is there a way to disable this password requirement?

    I used the instructions posted by Antman on my first install of win7. It worked.
    I think others would like to know that it still works on SP1.
