  1. eliminate the need of a password when my laptop starts


    I am trying to figure out how to eliminate the need of a password when starting up my laptop. I have found many answers in the forum on how to do this and have tried everything. I have unclicked the "require sign-in" to never under accounts/sign in options. I have typed in "netplwix" and unchecked the box in the User Accounts that reads "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". I even created a local account but then all of my settings for the desktop is different than when I use my admin account. I just want to start my laptop and go right to my desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Is there a trojan csrss.exe? If so how do I eliminate it.

    She has changed the Google password.

    Do we change her Microsoft password using her pc using the following steps?


    • Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, and then click Change a password.
    • Type your old password followed by a new password as indicated, and then type the new password again to confirm it.
    • Press Enter.

  3. New computer set up - resetting welcome name and eliminating password

    I bought a new laptop last week.

    Dell Inspiron 15"

    I was setting it up and when the computer starts up , it has your name....hello Raymond

    Mine says Raymond G......first letter of my last name.
    I recall signing up for a lot of things when you have a new laptop and I always use the first letter of my last name for the .....lat name box. It is a modest attempt to maintain privacy on the net

    I want to eliminate the G


    I tried to reset the username and followed instructions going to settings........accounts and I tried everything under the sun to eliminate the G and followed instructions I found online.

    I tried to change the username from Raymond G to Raymond........now I have 2 user accounts with Raymond G

    The second account I cannot even use because it is protected with a password I never set up and does not work with any other password I use.

    The original user name Raymond G required a password.

    I eliminated the password so I could double click through it and it worked prior to me trying to eliminate the G and getting a second account. Now the password returned..........grrrrrr.

    I eliminated it the first time by logging into netplwiz.........user accounts and users.
    Behind my name and email address it says administrators and users.

    I don't recall the USERS behind the administrators the first time.

    The box that needs to be checked to require a password is not checked.

    So, it seems no password would be required.

    But now I have to enter a password for the original username and the second one is not accessible.

    If I check user names the only one listed is Raymond G even though two Raymond G's appear in the lower left corner when I log on.

    I found another place to change the name under Task Manager........I think.......
    And it had the computer name listed as .......something like ......DZ123d456......something random provided by Dell.
    So I tried to change it and as an experiment I tried ABC123.......it did not work.
    But if I log into Dell Assist, which is an owner support forum, it says ABC123 on the link. But not on the computer.

    --------------


    How do I eliminate the second username?
    How do I rename the original username to eliminate the G?

    Thanks

    eliminate the need of a password when my laptop starts

    FORGOTTEN PASSWORD To gain access to Laptop

    To tell the truth, I must profess ignorance

    When all this started I went through the following steps:.
    1) Turn on the laptop picture of a fjord appears.
    2) A left click on the screen causes the user name to appears with the password box under it.
    3) Anything(or nothing) typed into the password box, with a tap to the enter key then brings the command to try again.

    See, I can't seem to get anywhere except I somehow(during my efforts to try variations of the password hint) ended up getting a screen that was related(I think) to BIOS.
    That allowed me to go through some settings(administrative?) and choose a password. I chose to do that.
    Aha I thought.
    All that did was give me a log in command box(for which I created a password) .
    So now, instead of the 3 steps above I have to log in to get to the 3 steps above. A step I didn't have to do before.

    What I'm trying to say is this(after all my fumbling about): that I still do not know the difference between a local user account or an MS account-linked user account.

    All i know, at this point, is that I am stuck at step 3 and really am not sure what to do except maybe have my fiend reach out to ASUS.

    I made a mistake in my first post. I do not have the OS disc. I have the ASUS DVD suite. I mistakenly assumed it was an OS disc. I talked to my friend and was told that her laptop came preloaded with Win10.

    DVD suite listings
    -Power 2go8
    -E-Green
    -ASUS Firmware Update
    -Quick Install Guide

    Thanks for your reply sir. I do appreciate it.

    Regards,
    Bruce
