This question already has an answer here:
I have a Windows 7 machine currently. I am writing a script which will always be running. Basically, it checks to make sure a program is open, and if it's not, it opens it.
However, when my computer reboots when I'm not around, let's say due to windows updates. My computer turns back on, but idles at the login screen.
I would like my Windows 7 machine to automatically log into a specific account upon initial system boot up, but still keep a password on the account, so once the machine is booted up and logged in, can later be password protected still from switching user accounts or locking the computer.
How can I accomplish that?
