Currently I have 25 machine that startup and shutdown via bat file and WOL.  These machine just fire up and launch the programs we need them to launch without the need for login.  We recently got a Windows Storage Server and it requires usernames and password for the machine.  Is there a regedit that I can setup that would allow me to login to a user.
*Note these machines are not apart of a domain.  Window 7 Pro machines
Thanks for the help

Open Regedit
Browse to:  HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
Set: AutoAdminLogon = 1
Set DefaultUserName = the username you want to log in as
Create a new String Value called DefaultPassword and set it to the users password.

That's all you need to do.
