Windows 7: Auto Lock after Login

Auto Lock after Login

I know that you can set up windows to auto login the computer using "control userpasswords2" then you can tell it to log into the windows; therefore, allowing windows to continue booting the rest of the computer up.

Seeing that I want this on a server. I need the computer to log into the computer and then lock the computer right away.

Is there a command that I can put into the "startup" folder that will allow me to do this?

Why not let the computer auto login, let it stay at login screen... It's essentially the same as lock screen...
But wait... It's a server, why do you even need to login locally anyway? Am I missing something here?

I don't think so... If I'm wrong someone here will have the answer, luck with it.

Well
It is Windows 7 HP... but using it as Home Server.
Sorry I left that part out. It is not an actual true server OS.

There are some programs that need to boot up all the way and can't be used as a windows service.

1. iTunes
2. Steam Powered
3. PS3 Media Server
4. ORB
5. ect.....
