    Logon password issue


    I have windows 10 pro on my pc, it is not on a domain, and logon password is done via the PC its self, The login is not connected to a Microsoft account. There is only one login account on the PC.

    The problem is this, I reboot my PC, the login window comes up, I login no problem.

    If I reboot the PC and then leave it leave it and come back to it later, say a couple of hours (I have not worked out exactly what the time scale is), enter the users password and it will reject the password, I have tried to login many times. I have to reboot the PC again and then once rebooted I can then login and the password is accepted.

    I have tried changing the password but that made no difference, it is almost as thought once it has rebooted the PC and left it standing for a while, something goes to sleep and the only way to wake it is to reboot the PC.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Mapped network drives do not connect at logon in vista with automatic logon enabled

    I have vista x64 . I have some mapped network drives . They get connected when i enter the password at logon screen. Now i enabled automatic logon in vista and they do not connect anymore . I have to double click on them and enter the password manually .

    Windows displays the message "Could not connect to all drives" at logon .

    They used to connect automatically in xo with automatic logon enabled.

    My logon password is the same as the administrator password with which i can connect to these drives .

  3. unable to remove windows logon password


    unable to remove windows logon password

    went to control panel user accounts and there is no longer a ' remove password ' option as with windows 7

    i changed the settings to ' not require a password on logon' but made no difference at all

    MS suggest adding a new account and logging in with that without a password then deleting the old one.....

    does not not work as the add account is greyed out.

    cant see why this is so difficult..

    as as a side issue since trying to remove the windows logon password I am now presented on boot up with an OS choice wi cows 10 or 7.... I am certain this wasn't there before..

    any my help would be appreciated
    thanks

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
