    How to get rid of Startup password for good?


    I have tried so many times. I disable sign-in password on "netplwiz" and "Sign-in options" And at first it works. But either a few days or weeks later, I get the sign-in password option again.(sometimes it pops up when the computer awakes from it's sleep without turning it on) I check "Netplwix" and Sign-in options" and nothing was touch, but always have to reset the settings to be able to get rid of sign-in options again. But in he end, it just eventually come back.

    Is there a way for me to get rid of that for good? Is there a button on my keyboard that I am accidentally touching that's reactivating it manually or something? It's a little annoying to fix once in awhile.

    :)

  2. Windows Startup password

    Is it possible to remove a startup password without being able to log into the system? A friend's laptop just prompt her today for a password that she never enabled. Now, she does have a standard user account password, but that doesn't work for the startup password. She had the computer for about a year now and it has never asked for a startup password until today.

    I tried to use Hiren Boot CD to run a diagnostic on the laptop, but it has a bsod. Windows 10 normal boot crashes as well
