    You have to have a single account in the Pc and it should not have a password.

    A few have recommended that you remove your admin account password, obviously these people are not too worried about security. You can auto logon and keep your password active which is a more secure way around the situation.
    To do this click Start then type netplwiz in the search box and press Enter.
    In the Users tab of the window that opens, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
    Click Apply at the bottom of that window then When the Automatically Log On dialog box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login with then enter your account password in the two fields where required.
    Click the OK button.
    Click OK on the User Accounts window and its set, from now on Windows will automatically log that account on at Startup.

    This way if you logoff you will still have the Guest account option active and to log back in your password is needed, a little better than some of the silly idea's of inactivating your Guest account and deleting your password...............

    No password will leave your computer wide open to an external attack that may leed to identity theft, inclusion in botnet etc. Use a quality password of at least 8 characters including upper and lower case letters, two numbers and one symbol. You should also have an active firewall and up to date antivirus software.

    Go to control panel category setting and click on add or remove user accounts under User Accounts and Family Safety and remove all the user accounts created. Only keep the administrator user but remove the password associated with it. The account should not have any password. Kindly note, however, doing this will result in removing of the user profiles and all data and personal preferences associated with those profiles.

    remove all accounts in the system and keep the admin account. but don't PW protect it. you'll boot straight into windows. ( not recommended since less security. )

    Just do not include a password for the account, and make sure that it is the only account on that system. That should log you in automatically.
