Hi I have a machine that runs with a Windows 7 IPC.

Before it was automatically logging in without a password. User machine. Password none.

Now I have joined it to our domain. So I have to login at bootup. I have the option of logging in locally but the empty password string is not availible any more. Anyone know why this is?

  • Quick guess; Domain policy disables automatic logon. Apr 1, 2015 at 20:31
  • Hi Michael you are right. I had changed the name of the computer. And the domin automatically turned the auto start off.

The problem was because the automatic boot up sequence had the old name of the pc. I changed the name in the regedit file and it could boot up again
