Windows 7: Managing multiple users and system settings

14 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
Managing multiple users and system settings

I am looking for a third party software to allow myself to do all the following, on a networked computer.
I am setting up multiple users as local users and not adding them to the domain, but I have added the workstation to domain. I need the users to have internet access.
When starting/restarting Windows, I want to auto-logon the users I have set up. I want to load up to the Switch User screen as the default screen on startup.
On the switch user screen, I want the user to be able to double click on thier name and go straight to their desktop without prompting for a password.
I would like to be able the change the lock screen to the switch user screen, for the: On resume, display logon screen (option) and not log off the current user when it switches from thier desktop to the switch user screen.
I know this is a lot. If I need to install more than one third party software to do this, that will be fine too. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Logging on Automatically is easy enough to do. Log On Automatically at Startup

For the other stuff you may need to go into the Group Policy Editor, look through there and work with the settings, I can't say precisely which settings would have the desired effect.
