Configure Autologon to Automatically Sign Into Windows After a Reboot

Making the computer automatically log onto your user account after a reboot can allow WinEth to start mining Ethereum automatically if the machine reboots due to a crash or a scheduled update.

1: Download the Autologon tool from Microsoft TechNet. Extract the zip to get the executable.

2: Run the Autologon tool.

3: Autologon may automatically populate the username and domain, leaving you to simply enter your password and hit “Enable”.  If not, fill out the username and domain (or workgroup).
