Automatic Logon & Password
I think I must be losing it, but I cannot for the life of me remember
how to turn automatic logon on or off.

Right now it is set to automatically log me on, but the password
doesn't match, and I have to type it in. What I can't figure out how
to do is reset the password that is used with the auto-logon. With
Win2K this process is easy, but with Vista, it seems to be "hidden"
somewhere that is just not obvious, at least to me.

Any & all help appreciated.

Works for XP and Vista:

Configure Windows to Automatically Login (MVP Ramesh) -
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/Autologon.htm

You'll see where you need to type in the account to which you want to
automatically login and the password; just type in the correct password.

Thanks. I had completely forgotten the (undocumented ??) CONTROL
USERPASSWORDS2 utility. Turns out you can also get to the same window
by RUNning NETPLWIZ.EXE

Thanks again for jogging my memory.
