That is a Microsoft account, he wants it for domain accounts. You may use the tool "autologon" by Microsoft.

with some registry editing you can do an autologin
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultDomainName"="shorddomainname"
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultUserName"="logonname"
"DefaultPassword"="password"

Open in new window

save as autologin.reg and merge, if you change your password you have to edit and remerge

...and the difference to using autologon: autologon does not use plain text to save the password. That's why it's recommendable.

It will bring up a UAC prompt, so what? Editing the registry at that locations needs elevated rights, anyway.
