Disable Autologon via GPO

Other than writing a VB script to remove the registry keys is there an easy way to disable a users ability to have their system auto logon after boot.

I don't know of a way of doing this in AD, unless you want to create an ADM template. I had bad luck with those, so what we do is create a registry patch, and distribute it silently via Active Directory Startup Script.

Registry item located at: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
AutoAdminLogon: 1
Create string called "DefaultPassword", then provide the password to login to system.

By silently I mean create a .BAT file that calls the registry patch

sample code inside .bat file:
regedit /s \\server\share\registryfilename.reg

So in AD, go to properties of a user profile, hit the Profile tab> and in the Logon field, point to your .bat file.

Well I am going to stick with a script and not mess with a custom ADM. I was just hoping there was something fast to disable the autologon
