Help you to Remove Windows 7 Password


Remove Account Password & Turn Off Password Protection in Windows 7

One of the great features of Windows 7 is User account password protection. At last articles we learn how to create a Windows 7 logon password and how to change login password in Windows 7. However, there are times when removing a password from an account make sense. Learn how to turn off Windows 7 password protection.

Everyone can have his/her own account in win7. This avoids the obvious annoyances and security risks associated with sharing a desktop and having everyone's files available to all other users of the computer.
However, there are times when turning off password protection on a Windows 7 account makes sense. For example, if you are the only user of your computer, it may not make sense to have to type in a password every time you turn on your computer. Another case is that you are a forgetful person and you often forgot your Windows 7 User Password, you don't want to reset lost password each time you can't remember it.

Another reason you may want to remove account password protection is if you need multiple people to share the same account. Finally, if you want to set up a public account, you need to make sure people have access by not password protecting the account. Whatever your reasons, Windows 7 makes it easy to turn off password protection for an account.

Turn off Windows 7 Password ProtectionTo turn off password protection for Windows 7 account, make sure you are set up as an administrator on your computer. Then, begin by clicking on Start and then open up the Control Panel.start-control-panel-windows7.jpgIn the Windows 7 Control Panel, click the User Accounts and Family Safety option.

Under the User Accounts section, click on Change Your Windows Password.

In the Make Changes to Your User Account window, click on Remove Your Password.

Here, Windows 7 asks you to confirm your choice to remove your password by typing in your current password. This step is critical because it prevents just anyone from hijacking your account by removing or resetting the password. After you have typed in your current password, click the Remove Password button.

Windows 7 then takes you back to the Make Changes to Your User Account window. Unfortunately, Windows does nothing to confirm that you have indeed removed your password other than the new option on this window titled Create a Password for Your Account.

Verify Removal of PasswordYou can verify that Windows 7 has removed your password by logging out of your account and clicking on your account icon again. Notice that this time Windows 7 did not ask you for a password but instead simply logged you in.

Remember that anyone who has access to your computer can now log in to your account with typing password. Also, understand that anyone who steals your computer will also have access to your account and your private files. With no password protection, anyone can also set a new password and lock you out of your own account. Be certain that you want to turn off password protection for your account before you make your private files vulnerable.

Tips:Not a Windows 7 user? Still Using XP or Vista? Don't know how to remove account password on other Windows Versions? See these articles below.

Change account name


This problem is not filed under the correct category. Also more info is needed. I am assuming you are talking about renaming your user account in Windows. if this is the case, look under control panel, user accounts, click on the account you want to change and edit as needed. you will need administrative privileges to do this.

Bought from someone else need to put my nane on it


You have to make 2 changes, One for the computer and one for the user. Here is how you do both:
CHANGE COMPUTER NAME:
  1. Right click my computer and select properties
  2. Select "Advanced System Settings" (skip if win xp)
  3. Select "Computer Name" tab
  4. click "change"
  5. Enter the name of your choice
CHANGE USER NAME:
You cannot change a user account by just changing the name. Just changing the name will make a cosmetic change only and not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile.

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

If you wish to log into your new, corrected account automatically, do this:Start Orb>Search box>type: netplwiz [enter]
Click on Continue (or supply an administrator's password) when prompted by UAC

Uncheck the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to automatically log on by clicking on the desired account to highlight it and then hit OK. Enter the correct password for that user account (if there is one) when prompted. Leave it blank if there is no password (null).

Lost administrator rights


Step 1:
Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have. Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry. There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer. During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account. Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account. Step 2.Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup. During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account. Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel. Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety". Click on "User Accounts." Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account". Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password. Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account. Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 2. Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions. If you do not currently have an account on the computer, she will need to create you one.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.

Lost user account


You actually probably created the new account as an admin. You don't really need to recover it. You just use this account as your admin account. You can then create another non admin account now and have everyone else besides the "admin" likely being you, can use the non admin account. All your files can still be found in "rootdrive:\Documents and settings\administrator
There you can find all your documents that you had in My documents under the administrator account.
Hope this helps,
