    Auto login and lock


    by smilingsheep ·

    Awhile back on one of the numerous TechRepublic e-mails I receive, an article was posted about how to set-up a system to automatically login and immediately lock a windows XP computer when it restarted. Can someone point me to or re-post the article?

      Don’t know about the article.
      But here is a link that describes how to set up autlogin on a XP workstation:

      And this simple vbscript will lock the workstation, create it and put it in the startup folder.

      On Error Resume Next

      Set objShell = CreateObject(“Wscript.Shell”)
      objShell.Run “%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation”
