Log into Windows

Recommended Posts

I would like my autoit script to kick off when I reboot my computer - i.e. when I see the Windows login prompt. Is there a way to have it automatically log into Windows 2000 and then continue? I obviously know my own password, and sure it's not a GREAT idea to have that in my script, but I'm willing to live with that concern.

Maybe there's just a simple way to bypass the login completely... but that's probably a little more risk than I want, since I assume it means allowing no password for a user - seems extra susceptible to worms, etc.

Thanks,

aisc

Google "Auto Admin Logon" for about 800,000 hits on how to do this.

Hint: Set some registry values.

Sweet. That looks like what I was trying to do. Wasn't sure what to search for. Thanks.

Glad it helped.

Remember to clear those reg values after the login or your plain text credentials will be left there for all to see.
