Autologin Question

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am reviewing a case where someone had configured their computer with an autologin feature.  I have reveiwed the registry and the autologin is enabled and the default username is that individual's.  There is no default password key located in the registry.

I am wondering:
1.  How do I determine if that individual actually changed those key values?
2.  How does it login with no default password?  Is there another key that allows the login without a password?
3.  Are there other artifacts that I should be looking for?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
