How do I get my username to be stored the user name field when loging on to W2K?  Currently when I log of or reboot, I have to enter in my username.  How do I get it hard coded so it remembers my username?  I know there is a policy or something, I just can’t remember were it is.  If you could help me out that would be great.

It would be in the Local Policy on the machine, however if there is a Domain Policy that overrides your Local then changing it wont have any effect.

Hope This Helps,

Set it to 0 or delete it.

(or you could just remember your username)
