Hi to all, I am having a problem with my computer. I have it set up so I don't have to enter a password when I turn it on.
I just started using Outlook and now when I turn it on it wants a password. I am also seeing two users but I am the only one using this computer.
Would a system restore solve this problem?I have already done the 3 steps below.

Step 1)
Login to your user (Admin) i.e. just start the Windows 8 with your username and password.
Step 2)
Open command prompt (shortcut “Windows key+R”) and type “netplwiz” without quotes. Or you can just open the Metro UI screen and start typing “netplwiz” it will give you the result under app search like this:

Step 3)
Click on that and other windows will open. In that window uncheck the box shown below
