Default Enabling Auto-Logon and the Administrator Account in Vista & 7

Have you ever wanted to create an automatic logon for your Windows PC but couldn't find the option to do so? Or, on the disruptive side, have you ever found yourself without administrative access? We have... far too many times, and have decided to produce an article that offers up a slew of different ways to take care of both tasks.

You can read our full article and then discuss it here!

Default or you can do this

To autologin just type in the search box "netplwiz" highlight the name you want login with. Then uncheck the "Users must enter a name and password to use this computer." type in the password okay it out and restart the comp immediately and you will be squared away.

I forgot all about that command! I'll need to edit that in, because it actually looks to do the exact same thing as "control userpasswords2", but in far less characters. Thanks for the tip!
