This setting allows Windows clients to automatically logon without entering a user name or password, therefore bypassing the logon box.

Open your registry and find the key below.

Create a new string value called "AutoAdminLogon" and set it to "1" to enable automatic login.

Create a new string value called "DefaultUsername" and set it to username of the default user.

Create a new string value called "DefaultPassword" and set it to match the password of the default user.

Restart Windows and the system should automatically logon.

Note: As the password is stored in clear text any user with access to the local Windows registry may then be able to see the default password.

Registry Editor Example

|AutoAdminLogonREG_SZ1|

Settings:
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Name: AutoAdminLogon, DefaultPassword, DefaultUserName
Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
