    I have two profiles. How do I get rid of one and get Windows to startup without a password?


    Split from this thread.​


    Since the latest update, I now have 2 profiles to choose from on the Password page. Neither seems to be the one that doesn't require a password. So how do I get rid of the extra profile and the password?

    :)

  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

    Windows Startup password

    Yes, I'm sure there wasn't a Microsoft account on the laptop. When I set it up, she didn't want one

    So I had to do a factory restore on the laptop. All boot methods would crash. I found out the owner was duped into giving a scammer access to her computer. That's how the startup password got set.

    See its not the same as the account login password prompt

    Thanks for the link! I will most definitely save it and use it when needed
