Whilst really this is just horrible, there are times that you may need (hopefully) internal boxes to automatically logon with a specific set of credentials – perhaps to launch an application that cannot be installed as a service etc..
Here are the steps to do this (at your own risk! this means anyone with access to the registry will have your username and password)
1: Open regedit
2: Navigate to the below registry key
3: Create value DefaultUserName as a REG_SZ and enter the username you want to auto logon.
4: Create value DefaultPassword as a REG_SZ and enter the password for the user above.
5: Create value AutoAdminLogon as a REG_SZ and set it to 1
6: If applicable create DefaultDomainName as a REG_SZ and set it to the required domain.
Close regedit, reboot and it should now automagically log you on with the above details.
Did I mention this is horrible? 🙂
