You may need to request these changes by made by your IT department due to a possible lack of sufficient permissions:


  1. Open Regedit. To do this: click the Start button. In the Start Menu, either in the Run box or the Search box, type regedit and press Enter.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Egress\Switch and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Egress\Switch
  3. Right click in the white space on the right hand side of Regedit, underneath (Default) and create a DWORD, called DisableAutoSignIn with a value of 0 (zero) to disable auto sign in.
  4. You can change the value back to 1 if you wish to re-enable automatic sign in.


This key can also be configured at the user level instead of the machine level, by adding them to the respective folders above but by changing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
