    How about a real simple way to get rid of the password on startup? Us old timers are not up to all the razzle-dazzle in what I have found in my wanting to get rid of this awful time consuming and annoying time it takes to just start the computer working on 10. Never had this problem with 7…wish I still had it.

  7. Hey Debra, the process is written, you must have to make this new string write its name AutoAdminLogon?

  8. Did you make a new string and name it DefaultPassword?

  9. Brian Sprague


    My apologizes. I missed DefaultPassword since it did not exist. I made a new string similar to AutoAdminLogon and inserted my password and was able to make this work. Thanks much!

  10. Thanks for this article, but I was not successful. The first part was done previously before I saw your site but it did not help. In DefaultUserName I replaced the username that was in there with “username” [sic]. The DefaultPassword was not in regedit so I continued to create the string and AutoLoginOn and inserted “1”. But still would not work. To make doubly sure I went back and changed “username” back to my original username. Still no success.

  11. Thank ya, worked poyfect!
