Auto Logon and Lock

Is there a way I can make my computer automatically log in and then lock my account so that it does my startup programs automatically? (on Windows 7 x64)

Hello Michael,

I haven't tried this, but I suppose that after you set your computer to log on automatically to a user account you should be able to do either option below.

Create a lock computer shortcut and place it in your Startup folder in the Start Menu for this.

OR

You could also create a task to run the lock computer shortcut at startup with or without a delay for this as well.
