Hello Experts,

   What's the best way to run a scan on my network to find out which machines have Auto Logon enabled on them?  

   I have SCCM 2007 (Config Manager Report Viewer) can I view this through that utility? If so, where do I need to drill down to to see this option?  Thanks for your help.

AFAIK that's a local settings which probably will not show up in any network report.

You would need to read every computer registy for this value.

Windows NT\

AutoAdminLogon = 1

const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."
Set StdOut = WScript.StdOut
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_
 strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"
strValueName = "HistoryBufferSize"
oReg.GetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER,strKeyPath,strValueName,dwValue
StdOut.WriteLine "Current History Buffer Size: " & dwValue 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings"
strValueName = "AutoAdminLogon"
oReg.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,strValueName,strValue
If strvalue = 1 then
StdOut.WriteLine "Current WSH Auto Logon Value is enabled"
end if

Open in new window

Now you will need to leverage WMI to connect to the remote computer and gather this.
You would want to modify the Strcomputer value to match a netbios computer name.
If you have a list computer  name you can loop through the list with a ForEach statement ot gather the info.

If you like I can work one up for you.
