Now that your password has been removed using PC Login Now, a password is no longer required to log on to Windows!
If you are the only user on your computer, Windows will boot all the way to the desktop on the next reboot and will skip the logon screen completely.
If you're on a multi-user computer (as many families are), the logon screen will still appear after starting Windows but when you click on the user that had the password removed, you will not be prompted for a password and will instead enter Windows automatically.
You're Not Done Yet!
Assuming that PC Login Now worked as expected and your password has been removed/reset, I'm sure you're extremely happy to put this behind you and get on with your day. However, now is the time to be proactive so you never have to use PC Login Now again:
- Create a Windows password. Now that you can get back in to your computer, configure a new password right away.
Having a secure password is very important so please don't keep using Windows without setting one up. Just make sure it's a password you'll remember this time!
- Create a password reset disk. A password reset disk is special floppy disk or flash drive that you create in Windows that can be used to change your password if you ever forget it again in the future.
As long as you can keep this drive or disk in a safe place, you'll never have to worry about forgetting your password, or using PC Login Now, again.
