Windows 7: Password prompt!

Password prompt!

Hi all,

I have a user account on my laptop, running Windows 7, named 'RDPLIVE'.

FYI: It is an admin account, but it is NOT the in-built Administrator account.

What I want to do is either:

1) When the password prompt appears at first boot-up, I would like my 'startup apps' to load in the background, so that once i have entered my password and 'logged-in', my startup apps are 'nearly loaded'...if you know what I mean.

OR

2) Disable the requirement for the password at first boot-up, but then still be required to be entered should I lock my PC at any later point in time.

If only Option 2 is available, then I would go for that one and then part of my startup 'commands', apart form opening apps such as anti-virus and torrent clients, etc... I would also add a 'Lock PC' command, so it 'mimics' what I want to get out of Option 1.

Sounds like a good thing to have on my laptop as I am the only one who uses it, and will ever use it. There will always only be this ONE account on the laptop and I use it as a desk PC (w/docking station), so in terms of 'how secure' this idea is...that is not my main concern.

I wold just like to know if what I want to happen is at all possible!

Thanks for reading and any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Martyn

Click your Start Orb/Button (whatever you want to call it), type netplwiz into the Search box, press enter. From there Option 2 is available.
