I have to login before Windows Starts

I have recently reinstalled Windows 7 and I now find that I have to login before Windows opens.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks for your reply

Where or what is Windows R.

Or Control Panel - User Accounts and Family safety - User Accounts - Change your windows password - remove your password.

Windows R is Windows key plus R.

Thanks woolwell.


I managed to follow your instructions but I still have to login! That should have worked.

I do not have any passwords entered in WindowsI don't know if that makes a difference.

I'm stuck!

Did you try going through control panel?

Yes Woolwell I did.

I had to reinstall Windows again, that's sorted the login problem but I have another one. I will post again.
