I have Windows 7 installed and I type net user [username] in a command prompt. I get back all the expected information except 'Last Logon' is set to 'Never'. I've logged on and off plenty of times.

Why does it show up as 'Never'?

@paradroid I'm seeing a last logon date although I'm not on a domain (W7SP1). (this should really be a comment...) – Markus Bruckner Dec 29 '11 at 14:13

I have a date and time for Last Logon. My guess is that the information is only valid when the computer is on a domain. This would have to be confirmed by other people having Never while they are not on a domain.

Is there any chance that you've never actually set a password on the account and have always logged in without a password, thus never really seeing the login screen itself?

For example, when I type net user [username], the last logon is when I woke up my computer up from sleep and typed in a password to get into my account again.

No, the account has a password and I'm always logging in with it. – JBL May 4 '11 at 2:33
