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.
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.
