How To Automatically Login in Windows 7 for limited number of Times: Whenever you boot your Windows 7 operating system, you are asked to fill your username and password. This is obviously done for security purpose so that any unauthorized person cannot login in your system. However there may be occasions when you want to let your computer boot multiple number of times without asking the username and password.
When Would You Want Your Computer To Not Ask Username & Password
There may be a good number of reasons when you don’t want your Windows 7 Operating system to ask you username and password when your PC boots.
Security Reasons: You do not want to enter username and password every time your computer boots but you would like to make sure that nobody is accessing your PC behind your back ( A very common scenario when you have siblings). You can thus limit automatic username & password entry to 5 times ( or any number for instance). Thus, when your PC boots for 6th time, the intruder would be stuck.
Installing Software’s Or Deploying System Image: If you are installing some system software’s or any updates or deploying a system image which require your computer to restart multiple no. of times and you want to enjoy your coffee in front of your television rather than sitting in front of your PC for long time to enter username & password, this technique could be very useful.
So, lets quickly jump to the solution part to our problem.
