When I first got my Windows 7 laptop/pc,I did something (forgot what it was) that meant I did not have to login with a password. I now wish to reverse the process, but not sure how to go about this, help please!.

To login without a password, when one sets-up the login details one just does not enter a password.

If you go to Control Panel, User Accounts you'll see that one of the options is Create A Password For Your Account.
