    Windows ask for pincode at startup


    Not sure if this goes here or in User Accounts etc. but it´s system security, so.

    I want my computer to ask for my pincode every time I start it up and when it comes out of Sleep or Screensaver. When I Google this question I get 10 million hits on how to DISABLE the login password, but I need it ENABLED.

    But for some reason Windows wont let me.

    I can set a windows password or pincode in Settings- Login, but when I restart the PC it goes straight to desktop, skipping the login-screen.

    Please help, thanks.

    :)

  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
