    Default Where Has My Password Gone in Windows 8?

    Hello guys,

    I have set the user accout to my computer which is running with Windows 8 operating system. But this morning, when I booted the computer, it really shocked me. It enter the Win 8 system directly without asking me to enter my password. So I rebooted it to enter the BIOS SETUP and chose the SUPERVISOR PASSWORD. After I saved the settings and rebooted the computer, it yet did not require to enter password!

    Could you tell me what's the matter?

    Thanks a lot!

    It is time saving to no password entering when booting the computer. But as you have set one, there might be some problem with your Windows 8 operating system. It might be that someone has set the auto logon for you. it should be cancel in the registry by enter refedit and find [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]. Double click AutoAdminLogon and set the number as 0. Then reboot your PC.
