password

A couple of weeks ago I received a message saying that my password would expire in 12 days - did I want to change it now. Anyway after a lot of problems I finally managed to create a new password. That's O.K., but now every time I turn on my pc I have to type in my new password before I can do anything. How can I get rid of this, so that I just switch on and then go on to the internet. Thanks Ann

can be changed or deleted or added by going to [Start] > settings > control panel > user accounts and changing the settings to suit your requirements. Hope this helps.

Or Start, Run, type in

control userpasswords2

and click OK.

Untick "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer"

As zootmo says go to user accounts click your account click create a password, type in the password you are using now, leave the others blank and click OK. That will solve your problem.
