Windows 7: Disabling Administrator Account auto login

Disabling Administrator Account auto login


I'm in the process of creating a build for my company using sysprep, then imagex for deploying the image.

I understand that the autologin feature must be enabled in the unattended answer file for the built in administrator account to be enabled. I've done some testing and searching but can't find anything about stopping autologin.

Once Windows has loaded into the default administrator account after sysprep, how can this autologin be disabled?
Even if I create another user account, then restart, the computer will still autologin to the administrator account.

I am ultimately going to add the computer to a domain, this may fix the issue, but does anyone know how to disable this autologin after sysprep?

Thanks in advance
