    Expanded Use of NETPLWIZ?

    I use netplwiz to prevent Windows 7 from requesting a password when I log in on my home computer during boot up. Is there a way to prevent Windows from requesting a password when I log off and log back on?

    TIA for your help.

    Ron

    PS: I created a password so that I could use Task Scheduler to automate several jobs overnight.

    Check out Autologon, part of the Sysinternals Suite. I use it; and it might be what you need instead of what you are using now.

    I run it as a portable version. I enable it when I am around home and using my computer off and on. I disable it when I am going to be out of my home.

    best,
    Dick

    You could always try the old Domain trick of creating a service account (with Administrator privileges) which was used only to run Scheduled Tasks and never got logged on...
