Hi, my name is Jubby and I am new to computers, and every time I logon the password box appears and at first it had a tip , that if you didn't enter a password the box would not appear again, but this is not happening.How do I stop the box appearing at every logon.

To get rid of the Network Password Request when Windows starts, open the Network icon in Control Panel and select Windows Logon in the Primary Network Logon dialogue box and click OK. Don't restart the computer when prompted.

Open Control Panel, Passwords and on the Change Passwords Tab, click Change Windows Password, then OK. Type the current password, if you have one, in the Old Password box, leave New Password and Confirm New Password blank and click OK. Select User Profiles and All Users of This PC Use The Same Preferences, then click OK and restart Windows.

Sorry didn't get back straight away Jubby, seems it might be Windows XP that you have. I don't use XP so not sure of the details on this, except that it has User Accounts in the Control Panel which might or might not help.

This entry will put your post back to the top in the hope that an XP user will answer.
