Turning Off Autologon

Posted under Vista, XP by ifoundafix

The other day while browsing the Internet I Found A Fix for a recent problem I was having. The issue is described as follows;

My computer would logon as administrator by default when I turned it on.

The solution and description to this error is set out below;

You can either try downloading this tool from  from SysInternals or do it manually by;

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then click OK If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create the entry. To do this, follow these steps: a. In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.

b. Type AutoAdminLogon as the value name, and then press ENTER.

c. Double-click the newly created key, and then type 1 in the Value Data box. Quit Registry Editor. Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK.

I would like to acknowledge the assistance and thank Microsoft for their solution which can also be found here

I hope you too have Found A Fix!
