I am trying to enable AutoAdminLogon on a Windows 7 Enterprise machine so that the machine logs on locally (this machine is not in a domain) using the registry values in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, specifically "AutoAdminLogon", DefaultUserName", DefaultPassword" and "DefaultDomainName". I've done this many times with XP, but the problem I'm finding is a few seconds after I change these values (I've wrote a vbs) they are reverted back to the default, ie AutoAdminLogon goes back to 0. It's very wierd.
Anyone have any ideas?

On my version on Windows 7 "control userpassword2" does not exist, it's actually "netplwiz". Maybe this is a 7 Enterprise thing...? You're right thing would work but I need to automate this with a script.
Anyway, I found the cause. I'm running this script with an MDT task sequence, the task sequence is disabling AutoAdminLogon when it finishes. I've started a new post in the MDT forums for this. Thanks for the help Justin.
