I'm trying to removed the "insert a smart card" option from my windows 7 logon screen and am seeking help.
My computer (HP Elitebook 8540w if that helps at all) has one user which I want to be able to access either through a typed password or through a fingerprint scan.
I set up the password and fingerprint scan through "HP ProtectTools Administrative Console" but now whenever logging in, it also gives me the option to "insert a smart card." As I do not own a smart card or have the need to use one, I would like to disable or at least hide this option from my logon screen.
Yes, I have read and tried the information on the page https://www.howtogeek.com/64927/cleanup-your-windows-7-login-screen-and-remove-unwanted-logon-items/
It did not seem to help and I believe it has something to do with my use of "HP ProtectTools." But because I am not sure and am not a computer expert, I have decided to post here before aimlessly messing around with my computer settings.
Thanks in advance for the help
