removed simple pass, still required to enter simple pass master password on login.

HP Recommended
Pavilion D7t-7000
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I removed Simple pass and validity software, and I am still required to enter the master password that simplepass asked me to set up, I uninstalled all drivers, and software, and removed all remnants from registry, and I am still required to enter the password at login, i have done the netplwiz thing,  and bios says password is clear, so how do i remove this password requirement that i didnt have before i installed simplepass.

Creating a password for login is a requirement of SimplePass (and other security softwares).  This is an added requirement meant (at least in part) to allow you a login method to the computer should the SimplePass program / driver / fingerprint login stop working.

 

HP SimplePass is used with your fingerprint to help you log into the computer without having to type in the password.

 

Removing SimplePass (and the Driver) does not remove the Windows requirement to type in your Password to log into the computer.  After the fact, the two are not related.

 

If you want to log into the computer without your Windows Password (not recommended), you can set your Windows login to bypass the password requirement.

 

How To Automatically Login To Windows, Without Typing Any Password

 

Admittedly, the described procedure uses netplwiz.exe or control userpasswords2

 

 

  • You might try completely shutting down the computer and then starting it from the "off" condition.

 

You  mentioned that you edited the Registry -- you might want to use the Registry Export backup you made (before you edited the Registry) to re-establish your original registry settings.  

 

Why?

 

In normal cases, it is not required / recommended that you edit the Registry to remove SimplePass and / or the fingeprint driver.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE:

 

Because you have removed the security software and edited the Registry -- and because you have had issues using netplwiz, I strongly recommend that before you do anything else that you create a Restore Point and an additional Admin privileged account for your computer.

 

Why?

 

If you end up locking yourself out of your main account, you can still log into the computer using the other Admin account so you can try to sort out the damage.

solved the problem myself, and no where in your post does it suggest any help at all, rebooting from off, does not do anything. you simply go to netplwiz check require a password , restart, then go to netplwiz again and uncheck, and restart. done!!!!
