    Windows won't login automatically after password change


    Hi. I've changed my password for my pc but now it won't login automatically. When I boot my pc it tries to login and fails telling me the password is wrong. I then have to type in the password and it logs me in. I seems like it has changed my password for the pc but not for the auto login. I checked my settings and it still says that users do not need a password to login.

    Any ideas?

    maybe you still have to change password there. recheck> apply> uncheck> apply> give new password

    I got it working now. I tried to change the password and checked/rechecked the box for no password needed without any luck. I then changed to password to something else and it worked. So for anyone else having this problem try to change the password
