    Passwords are basic security. When you log on, you are accessing the shell to the OS. Think of a pistachio. The shell of the pistachio is your log on password, and the pistachio itself is the kernel. Without the shell, your pistachio can be easily crushed. The same goes with the password.

    LOL your soo funny! im a 16 yr old girl and i don't want my real name on here, so i called it anonymous which makes sense, and if you haven't noticed, everyone has a false name on here, so why are you picking on me? and its none of your business what i have and don't have on my laptop, and the only reason why i want a password on here is so that my nosy friends and cousins don't mess around on my computer! quite frankly, if your going to be useless to me, its pointless of you commenting!

    thanks and bye.
    cool story bro.

    p.s. i also said i have a password set, but there is no need for me to enter it in, so i was wondering why this is happening.
    If you want, download "Teamviewer" install it, and give us a PM and if you haven't sorted your problem out, then let us know-it can all be done via Teamviewer . Passwords aren't just so nosy family members can't get in. They are vital against hackers ie: they are the shell as I said. Again, coming back to the Pistachio; there are some pistachio's where you can't crack open the shell and eat the pistachio inside. If you have a strong password, your "pistachio" (kernel) is a lot safer from hackers, as it is harder to crack open

    Just a bit of rambling if you can make sense of it
