I never understood why people want to make their computers less secure. Do you know that if someone tried to connect from the outside, they would receive that same password prompt? That's important. If you remove it, you would be making it your PC less secure.

The proper way to use a Windows 7 system is to ALWAYS log on to a standard user.
It helps prevent attacks this way. It is safe and just as easy. If you even need to do admin stuff then you choose the time and program. When it doubt don't install stuff.

I was under the impression that the original poster didn't want to type any password.

I have Windows 7 configured to automatically log me in.
How is that different from not having a password?

If there are no shares listed or no daemons, running it doesn't matter, unless someone has physical access. However, if there is file sharing & you try to connect from another PC on your LAN, does it prompt you for a password?

jefro,

Betty would appear to have at least two options: To log in
automatically, or to remove her password. If that is not the
case, then it would be good to know why not. Obviously
there are differences between the two apparent options.
What are those differences?

guapo,

Were your comment and question directed at me or at Betty?

I have no file sharing.

I am occasionally told that an operaton requires administrator
approval, but when that happens it is usually sufficient to click
on the OK button (or equivalent) without having to input a
password. I think that is what Betty wants.

1. Give the Administrator a Complex password.
2. Create a Standard User with a very simple password, always sign in with the standard.

I thought this was SOP.
