|Subject:||Protecting the Automatic Logon Password|

I was trying to change the way of automatic logon.
I wrote simple executable using LSA to set password by LsaStorePrivateData
(). Then I deleted reg.key value â€˜DefaultPasswordâ€™
I restarted PC (WindowsXP installed) but it didnâ€™t get through â€“ it show
log-on dialog and I have to enter password manually.
I thought that Winlogon should be able to retrieve â€˜secretâ€™ password and not
to look for â€˜DefaultPasswordâ€™ value.
Do I missing something here? Any additional steps needs?
