I have checked a few things.  What should I check to allow me to logon locally other than the administrator which can do so.

Thanks

Are you on a domain? There is a group policy or local policy that is blocking you from logging on.

local policy / workgroup .  I used the gpupdate security analysis.  What option am I missing to choose.

Group policy is a possibility.  If you are not on a domain, the check other local policy settings.  It is possible that the account is disabled, inactive, or restricted by some other means.
I recall being able to set acceptable time slots for logging in through Active Directory, so even if you don't have an official GP, you may want to check these options.

Go to Local Policie under the Local Policy then User Rights then find Deny logon locally to view the users.

Because of an account restriction.  I have no password on the mahcine.  This must be the issue.

It would seem that my answer, WorldInChaos, was more descriptive and direct in answering the proposed question.  It offered many possible problem areas/solutions.  Dariusq just took out one of my points, and now he gets 400?
I'm cool with whatever happens, it just seems funny to me that one line, which I included, gets all the credit when taken alone.

WorldinChaos,

Honestly, I don't care about some points it is suppose to be about helping others get through a problem. If you read my post I walked him through how to check the local policy which seems to be what he did. You and I were thinking about the samething when we type the comment. I gave a little more description on how to get to the local policy. Again I don't care about the points. I use this site to help others because I have been helped in the same way before.

It's cool, I was just curious, in this case, I was trying to get points, because I need enough to become an expert, and so I was hoping for some.  I answer the questions from work, so it's not like I can scan tons of them.  Like I said too, it isn't horribly critical either way to me, I was just letting it be known what I thought.  I'm glad to hear that you are cool about everything, and that you have a collected attitude.  Glad there wasn't too much hostility.  Gotta go, hopefully help some more people...
