  1. Windows 10 Logon Password Now Required Every Time - Whats Going On


    Recently I have had to reset my laptop running Windows 10 to factory settings and now, every time I boot up, it keeps asking for my email password to allow me to login, even though I didn't set this when restoring. I even thought I'd made a mistake, so last evening restored it again, taking particular notice, but still it keeps requesting this. I never use my email address for logging on, I use my nickname, but even that isn't showing anymore.

    I usually just allow it to boot up without security and find this very annoying. What can I do about this?

    Anyone had similar problems and know the answer?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 logon requires 2 separate logons

    It would be quite a deliberate "accident" to set a BIOS password because you actually need to get into BIOS to set it! Removing it requires the same steps: Get into the BIOS, then clear the password.

    If you do not remember the BIOS password then there are two options:

    • If this is a desktop PC then you need to open the case and remove the shiny button cell battery from the motherboard for 10 minutes. This will clear the BIOS password.
    • If this is a laptop then you need to return it to the distributor.

    Is there anyway to bypass the initial logon that requires a password?

    I have a problem with windows 10, is there anyway to bypass the initial logon that requires a password? I’ve done google and it only indicates ‘netplwiz’, i’ve done everything that’s suggested and it still fails.
