    v1607: Can't disable last user auto login

    Before v1607, I used the gpedit logon script to disable the automatic login of non-passworded accounts. It's been fine for all the time I've been with Win10 since release.
    Name: C:\Windows\System32\reg.exe
    Parem: ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch /V Enabled /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F
    Since v1607 hit, it has stopped working. So I tried this instead, and the keys/strings were already set as it says so on the guide--so nothing to do there.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions? Other than adding a password to this one account or having to type in a username/path to login (this account is for family members). Or did Microsoft bork something again?

    Hello Robb,

    I'm afraid that the only way to stop this is to create a password for the account. You could make it something simple though to make it easy to use.

    That's what I was afraid of was going to be the only option. Oh well, thanks for the input. They always break one thing and fix another...
