how to disable registration validation email and security code?

OK, I finally get my elgg site running on localhost. I'm trying to set up a few accounts to test the site. However, by default email validation is required upon registration. I googled and found a plugin 'siteaccess' which can turn if off. But then at registration page a security code entry is shown, which was not there before I enabled the siteaccess plugin. The problem is there is no code shown so I have nothing to enter. I checked the siteaccess plugin there is not a setting for this. How can I get around it?

I get a screenshot of the security code page:

This is a screenshot of the plugin settings:

Thanks for your time!
