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. – Michael Frank Apr 1 '15 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. – DavyGravy Apr 28 '15 at 16:45

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
