disable xp auto login

March 23, 2005

Fresh install of XP Pro off an Alienware OEM disc and it automatically logs on as administrator despite other users being setup.
fix:
regedit HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and change AutoAdminLogon from 1 to 0.
Also, creating a password for the admin account should have the same effect and is a good practice in general.
