    Immediately I press the power button - total bsod, and no error message and I have to reboot,
    Have you tried the software restriction policy method?

    Two questions about Option 3:
    1) Any reason why cmd.exe is used instead of reg.exe (comparing to similar tutorials on other sites - I'm using reg.exe now)?
    2) Why doesn't it work to add another trigger "At startup," and choose "Run whether use is logged on or not"?
    (That doesn't make any difference; I tried it.). Isn't there any way to run the command before the logon screen appears?

    Other things I've tried that didn't work:
    -Using nssm to run the same "reg.exe add ..." command as an Automatic startup service (directly or as a batch file).
    -Renaming the LockApp folder (How to Disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607)? Winhelponline)

    How would that help - BSODs are a crash.

    I use the task scheduler method now.

    Well maybe that method does NOT cause a BSOD? I updated my post with the restriction policy method after you said renaming the LockApp folder causes a BSOD, so there was the possibility that you hadn't read that bit. But if the task scheduler method works for you, great!

    1) it does not matter - it is clever enough to work it out.

    2) If you autologin, problem does not arise.

    It would be easy to disable the Lock Screen if one only could get rid of Win10's BACKUP of all folders in the folder C:\Windows\WinSxS .

    It's very easy to Change the name of LockApp.exe located in C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy .

    But then Windows only uses the same file from C:\Windows\WinSxS instead.

    And I have tried to become the owner of Sub Folders in that WinSxS folder, but no success.

    So if someone can solve that problem, we're rid of the Lock Screen!

    /!

    Q1) I'm not sure what you mean. OPTION THREE uses "reg" at step 11, and not "cmd".

    Q2) This wouldn't affect the lock screen at startup since the task will not be able to change the DWORD data value at startup.

    Just did a fresh install of Windows 10 pro on one of my systems. All the old methods seem non-effective and new methods aren't indexed very well on google yet since it's fairly new. I was able to get rid of it via software restriction policy however it still shows at start up which is very annoying. So stupid especially on pro version I don't want any lock screen. If a new method is discovered to disable it at start up (without disabling sign on screen) please share. At least for now it's gone when I lock the computer once it's booted.
