Auto Logon & Lock 1.0
Auto Logon & Lock is a nifty utility which, as its name suggests, can automatically log into your account and then lock it so that the other users cannot access your data.
Complicated installation procedure
Installing the application does not involve the traditional screens most users are accustomed to.
Instead, you have to extract the contents of the archive and place them in specific folders. Furthermore, the procedure involves adding some registry keys and configure the operating system to automatically log to your account after booting up.
The purpose of the application is to log you into your account and immediately lock access to it in order to allow applications continue their job in the background, if they’re scheduled to start with Windows.
Basically, when you return to the computer and punch in the unlocking password everything is loaded and ready to be used.
There are no configuration options to tinker with because the entire procedure happens on the spot.
On the other hand, automatically logging into your account and then immediately locking it also leaves the other users out. A nice addition would have been the possibility to delay the log-in, thus giving other users the chance to step in.
Auto Logon & Lock is not the perfect solution for ensuring that all the applications related to your account load up without compromising security; but there could be some scenarios suitable for its actions.
