My laptop is an HP Pavilion ab090na, OS is Windows 8.1 64-bit. I have disabled the password request that used to appear at the start by unchecking the relevant box after calling
netplwiz(as suggested here).
However, after a few days without shutting down or restarting, I finally shut the laptop down. The next day, upon turning it on, the password request reappeared.
Why did this happen, and how can I prevent this from happening again?
To further clarify: after I've disabled the password the very first time, the box I access by calling
netplwiz has never been re-checked. No particular maintenance has been carried on the laptop - just regular use. Also, after I've disabled the password the very first time, the password request window never showed up until the other day.
