"I’m new to a computer with Windows 7. I don’t have a Windows password, and I always get presented with the logon screen where I have to click my username to log in with password. I'm not sure what I've installed that's made it do this. But is there a simple way around it? I only have one user account (which has admin rights) and no password on it. Thanks in Advance."
