Bypass Windows 7 Auto Logon - Please Help!

2 posts in this topic

I'm admin to a bunch of public pc's at work and right now most of them run XP and automatically logon to the domain using a domain account...I've set the correct winlogon settings in the registry for XP. Now on XP before the computer logs in you can hold down the "shift" key and it will bypass the auto logon and let you login as a different user (either local or domain).

Now I've setup the same thing on Windows 7, but the "shift" key does not work to bypass this and I have not been able to figure out a way around this. Our public machines are locked down with a special auto logon user. If I need to fix the computer it is very convenient to log off, hold down "shift", and then logon as local admin.

Can someone please help me with this? And if you don't understand what I'm asking I can try to explain it better.

Thanks

Holding down shift strangely doesn't work, but alternating the left and right shift keys really fast works....AMAZING. Microsoft you so crazy! :D
