I'm not sure what you're tying to do is possible. In my experience, if you click on Log Off, that triggers the log on prompt regardless of whether or not you enabled autologon. Autologon only applies to restarting or booting.

Hi Ruby
I have setup the autologoon on five of WIndows NT servers with the same procedure and it works great.

There is an additional setting for Windows 2000 that you will need to add that is not used for NT. I had this one drive me crazy when we started adding in 2000 pro machines.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value: ForceAutoLogon
Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1
