Enable users to automatically logon to Windows (For 98/ME).

This tweak forces the machine to auto logon and to ignore any bypass attempts.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me
When a Windows is configured to automatically logon to a specified account, users can bypass this and enter alternate account information. By using this tweak you are able to forces the machine to auto logon and to ignore any bypass attempts. Also, if user tries to logoff from specified user account, user will logoff, but after that he/she will be again automatically logon to the specified account.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a String value “NoLogon”, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and set the value data to “RUNDLL32 shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 0”.

After that log-off and now when you login using the new username you will gain access to the desktop.

NOTE:
Once this tweak has been implemented any subsequent users accounts that are created will inherit the 'NoLogon' value and therefore reboot when they login. To avoid this; when you first create a new user, open the key listed below for the newly created account name (for example: [HKEY_USERS\(New User Name)\]) and remove the 'NoLogon' value.
