You can try using that registry or add that command in a batch file and using PSExec copy over that batch from your PC to remote PC and then execute the same.

PSExec commands are as below

1. Start > then type netplwiz
2. Select the user account that's logging on automatically and check the “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"
3. click on the Apply button

Try this first:
psexec \\computername -u username -p password rundll32 netplwiz.dll,ClearAutoLogon

If this doesn't work then it is set in the registry

psexec \\computername -u username -p password reg delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ -v DefaultPassword
psexec \\computername -u username -p password reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\  /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_BINARY /d 0 

Open in new window
