There is an entire discussion on this topic and as this is a Public Forum you may actually be breaking the LAW in certain parts of the world by helping Criminals access Computer Systems illegally.

If that happens with what is currently occurring particularly by the US Government any Country can request your Extrication to be tried under their Laws for your crime.

America set a very dangerous Precedent when they started attempting to Extradite people that they allege had broken their LAWS by Cracking Computer Systems. Just keep that in mind the next time you post to questions like this.

OH and By the Way calling you an Idiot isn't any of these things Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate the legal right of others; but you may feel differently. It's just not nice but it isn't against the rules.

Are you sure it is not the network asking you for the password here..

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Windows 7 password

Windows 7 will never ask for a password unless you have it enabled to do so, and only then when you boot up or change between accounts.
I would look towards your network, it sounds as if that is the cause.

Do you have a router?
If so then reset with a new password, then make sure you do not forget it OR your settings otherwise you will be back to square one.

Were you on your own wireless network?

by Ron K. In reply to Windows 7 password

Mine has a password that anyone who wants to connect to our wireless must provide when they choose to connect. It's easy to setup, depending upon your router. <br>
If you were on someone else's wireless network they may have set a password in which case you are, generally, out of luck.

And what happens if you press Enter?

by OH Smeg In reply to Windows 7 password

It is possible that there is no password just the system asking for one.

But here with the lack of Detail about when you are asked for the password I would think that it is when the Net Book attempts to Log onto a WiFi Network. Every current WiFi Router has a PassPhrase to allow the computers to access the full WiFi connection that they hand out.
