Restore the Auto Logon Configuration

Question

Because of a LAN operation I changed the logon name. Now I have changed it back to 'instrument' but I still get a logon window for the password at every boot-up . How can I restore the normal auto logon configuration?

Answer

In WINDOWS, please click START and RUN (opens 'regedit') and then OK.

In the tree on the left-hand side, choose the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

then software

then Microsoft

then WINDOWS NT

then current version

then click Winlogon (which opens the window on the right-hand side)

Please change the AutoAminLogon from 0 to 1.

Please check the DefaultUserName - it should be: 'instrument'

Please create the new string 'DefaultPassword' (if not available) and set it to 'instrument'.
