Windows 7: Login Computer Automatically At Certain Time

Login Computer Automatically At Certain Time

Hi. I'd like to set my work computer to login at about 10 minutes before I arrive for work so that when I get there everything is loaded already. I'd also like the computer to immediately lock after I login so that nobody can access it.

The obvious response is why don't you just leave yourself logged in. But for some reason everyone here at my office is supposed to log off before they leave.

Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Thanks.

I would ask if the rules allowed you to just put the machine in sleep mode with screen locked at quitting time. That may satisfy security without slowing you down in the morning. Login via a script or program is generally considered a security violation. That's why it's made difficult to do.

Thanks for the reply. I actually just figured out something. I have logmein installed on my computer as well as the mobile logmein app. So when I'm about 10 minutes away from work sitting at a stop light, I just whip out the app real quick and login. Works like a charm.
