    Another option is to password protect your system and use, from the "Run" box, "Control Userpasswords2", which has been around since XP.
    This allows you to enter the password once to allow your computer to logon automatically, and enables some features that you can't use without a password.
    Also allows you to lock your computer, only way to get back to autologon is to reboot.
