Script to unlock the lock screen automatically


Recommended Posts

Basically, I want to unlock a user account by executing a script (while a user see's their locked screen, if this script is executed in the background, it unlocks their account without having to type in any password). In a perfect world, I would have a service running that can automatically log specific users in whether their account is locked or they just turned their computer on and no users have been logged in yet.

I don't want to have anything special enabled on the computer (like the remote desktop workaround). I can provide the actual password to the account and I would like this to be compatible on Windows 7.

Has anyone come across any script that can do this? If there isn't a way to unlock the computer from startup, is there at least a way to unlock the account that's currently already logged into but just has the lock screen up?

You cannot, it's been asked before. You're essentially trying to bypass the security measures implemented by Microsoft. It's possible but not been attempted in autoit and there were not many posts on it in other languages. I think the last time I googled it I couldn't even find any successful, runnable, code releases (for obvious reasons) in any language. There was a topic I was reading on it in C++ on stackoverflow, but it's been a while since I googled it.

I say for obvious reasons because it's an extremely easy way to implement a backdoor in anyone's computer. Imagine being able to unlock any computer you infect thanks to some poster on the interwebz who did all the work for you.
