Hi,

I used to start my Mac running Tiger without password but lately I am
always being asked for it. In the security control panel all security
options are off. I have a G5 quadcore.

How can I get back to starting up without password? Thanks.

Try this first: uncheck the box to signing in w/o password, reboot, then check it again. Sometimes these settings get ’stuck’.

If that fails, then you might try changing your password via Users and Groups, even if it’s to the same password.

If that doesn’t work, try running keychain repair in Keychain Access (I think that’s what it was called back then!)

If THAT doesn’t work delete your login keychain, reboot set the no-login setting. You’ll want to make sure you go theough your saved passwords and record them if need be, first.
