Can i autologon at startup and automatically lock?

Hi,

I'd like windows to automatically logon at startup and then lock (or stay locked and logon in the background)

Is there such option?

Thanks.

There's probably an easier way to do it, but you can set your account to auto login:Tip: Auto-Login Your Windows 7 User Account | Sarah In Tampa | Channel 10 . You could then put a CMD prompt into your startup folder to lock the account.

Autologon says:
"Windows atomatic logon tool..." and "Locking a PC after logon -- Any logged-on session can be secured with automatic workstation locking."

Existing methods to lock the desktop after auto logon just call the LockWorkStation function through rundll32.exe via some shortcut placed in Start Up or registry. That takes a while to lock depending on how bloated your Windows is and till then it just sits on the desktop. And Safe Mode doesn't get locked since the start up items don't run in Safe Mode. More importantly using rundll32.exe for these functions causes a stack corruption which will eventually crash the system or worse.

So I made a replacement shell (Windows starts lock.exe instead of Explorer) which locks first and then launches Explorer in the background. It also handles Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Command Prompt and detects and launches the x64 cmd.exe on an x64 system.

I like your program, finding it through several web links (including Maximum PC), but Avira shows that it contains a worm. What's the story?

It's just one page of code; must be a false positive. Unless you downloaded it from somewhere else; might be injected with webshit.
