Remove Power On Password

HP 2000-2c29WM Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I bought my notebook new and have never had to power on password. I had some problems with my laptop so I restored to factory settings Now I am having to put a password in when the computer first turns on. Power on Password. I have went into the bios screen and arrowed to security tab. I then hit enter and put the password in which I just guessed and it worked and enter on the verfiy password. and then f10 to save. It did not remove the power on password How did it get there in the first place and now how do I get it from asking. I am the admin. Is it something because I set myself as the admin? Please help I can get into my computer but putting two passwords in is a pain. I am the only one that uses it so there is no need for power on password. I read another way was to take the battery out is that a good idea. ? I really don't want to do that. Should I remove my self as admin will that do it. please help I am really frustrated. Thank you
