if this is a DC or server then,  - I am going to sound harsh but really, dont be stupid......why would you want to open up a hole in your security like that?

Believe it or not, I have a customer who has a client/server software package that *requires* this for the software to work.  It is amazing how poor some of the software product design is out there.

Create this shortcut and add to the startup items for this auto-logon user:

%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

It'll force the DC to lock up automatically as if it's been left unattended.

It helps to seal some of that security hole we all know and love.

It's more of a work-around of someone else's lazy programming, but thanks. :-)
