AutoLogon Using LSA Secret with Sysinternals via Group Policy Startup

Many post how to setup a Kiosk / auto logon, Sysinternals has a great 3.01v, however to take advantage of the settings to Enable/Disable for each user their is not currently a command line to accept the option while at the same time being prompt for credentials/or acceptance from the UAC. Script to automate using Group Policy Startup/or/Logon requires that the Tool be given admin privileges. This is a challenge since the KIOSK user is just a domain user with no admin access. The key is to use the Sysinternals tool that removes the Plain Text access in the registry, use GPO to administer the settings on Start up. All without having to execute the tool at the workstation for each just to Enable the feature. Thanks – Ted.
