Windows NT provides Registry settings that can be set so that a user is automatically logged in the next time the system would otherwise put up the logon dialog box. In order to enable autologin you have to change some registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon such as DefaultUserName, DefaultDomainName, DefaultPassword and set the AutoAdminLogon key to 1.
