    Unable to disable password on startup on Windows 10 Version 2004 9hPjbiiiqEw5R0CsSVg2OBWlxpNrEpBPMy9A5-eNz9A.jpg

    Hi. Usually I disable the requirement to enter my password on startup by running the netplwiz command and unticking the box which says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".

    However after a recent update (now on Version 2004) the password prompt has reappeared each time on startup and the box has disappeared on netplwiz, as seen in the screenshot.

    Does anyone know a workaround for this?

    I am logged in using my Microsoft account, not a local account.

  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

  3. 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
