    Password at startup

    Hello -
    I would like to know how to stop having to give an administrative
    password when I turn my computer on. (Vista Basic on a laptop).

    Thanks!

    Do you mean a password is required before you can even boot Windows
    (BIOS password) or a user account password (Windows)?

    If the former, go into the BIOS (providing the necessary password as
    prompted) and remove the password from there. It is usually under the
    "security" section but differs from BIOS to BIOS. If you didn't put the
    password there, ask the person who did.

    If the latter, see below (works for both XP and Vista):

    Hi Varuna,

    If you mean from startup, then see:

    Logon Automatically


    If you mean from resuming (waking up) from sleep or hibernation mode, then see:

    Password Protection on Wakeup


    Hope this helps,
