Autologin – windows 7

Written by Leif Stenfeldt. Posted in Diverse, Tips

Autologon enables you to easily configure Windows’ built-in autologon mechanism. Instead of waiting for a user to enter their name and password, Windows uses the credentials you enter with Autologon, which are encrypted in the Registry, to log on the specified user automatically.

Autologon is easy enough to use. Just run autologon.exe, fill in the dialog, and hit Enable. To turn off auto-logon, hit Disable. Also, if the shift key is held down before the system performs an autologon, the autologon will be disabled for that logon. You can also pass the username, domain and password as command-line arguments:

autologon user domain password

Note: When Exchange Activesync password restrictions are in place, Windows will not process the autologon configuration.

How to reset your Mac OS X 10.4 – 10.6 password without an installer disc

Written by Leif Stenfeldt. Posted in OS X, Tips

Reset 10.5 Leopard & 10.6 Snow Leopard password

  1. Power on or restart your Mac.
  2. At the chime (or grey screen if your chime is turned off), hold down Command+S on your keyboard to enter single-user mode.
  3. This step is optional, but it’s a good idea because it checks the consistency of the hard disk before moving on. At the prompt, type fsck -fy and press Enter/Return. Wait for the checks to complete before going to the next step.

Backing up the profiles in Second Copy 8

Written by Leif Stenfeldt. Posted in Tips

Backing up the profiles
There is an easy way to back up the profiles. Select “Create Second Copy Setup Folder…” from the Tools menu.

Second Copy 7 and 8 store their profiles and settings information in a hidden file called “profiles.dat” under “\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Centered Systems\Second Copy” folder. (where, is the currently logged in username.)

In Windows Vista/7/2008, the profiles.dat file is stored under “\Users\\AppData\Local\Centered Systems\Second Copy” folder.

Second Copy 2000 stores its profiles and settings information in a hidden file called “profiles.dat” under “\Program Files\SecCopy” folder.

You can also import the profiles into Second Copy by selecting “Import” from the “File” menu.
