How do I make HP simplepass my main login at the homescreen rather than using my windows password?

1. hp pavilion dv6-6153cl

2. windows 7, core i7 processor

 

So this computer is a very recent purchase and already I am not really liking it. Yesterday the graphics card crashed and my whole computer freaked out and restarted itself and since then my simplepass, though it was my main method of logging into my computer (at the main welcome screen) my cimputer now asks for my typed password. I do not like this and I do not know how to change it back to having my simplepass be the main method of logging in

Hi,

 

There is an excellent guide by Daniel_Potyrala that should help you reinstall HP SimplePass.
