I have a windows Server 2008 that need to automatically autologin on startup, i've added this registry key :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultUserName String Administrator HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultPassword String PASSWORD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AutoAdminLogon DWORD 1
but in the key DefaultPassword is stored the Administrator password and a normal user on the server can view this password, i've tried to create a policy on the key Winlogon of the registry but if i deny the permission to view this key to a normal user, the user can't login, receive permission denied ...
Can i insert the encrypted password on the DefaultPassword key ? Can i disable the access to this key to a normal user without broke the windows access of the user ?
