heres my problem:
I need to install a new software suite on a win nt box, and the machine is currently setup to auto-login. The account that is automaticly logged into is not the admin account. the software is giving me errors during install, after contacting the software vendor, they determined i have to have administrative rights to install it (wasnt realy shocked at that).this is a new client, so i wasnt the one that setup the auto login in the first place, and have never setup or worked with the auto login feature. Can someone tell me how i can disable this feature? Ive found a few articles on how to enable it and i could probly do some reverse engineering but would like to get expert advice before trying that. Thanks
