Lukas,
I see this happen quite a bit but have always wondered about the need to
clean up registers and temporary files etc.

I often have issues of temporary files and temporary internet files, that
are left behind, that interfere with browser sessions and some application
access.

I have on numerous occasions helped out users who have issues accessing
applications and (especially) internet explorer sessions, that hang because
of the temporary files left behind.

I tend to manually delete both temporary internet files and temporary files
from the temp directories, usually with great success.

How frequently do you re-boot your PC?
What do you do to clean up the residue?

Note #1 -- If they are so bothered by having to enter a user and password,
perhaps you could implement fingerprint signon or use a token.

Actually, this brings me to another point: Why do the user want auto logon?

So they can get to work faster? If that's the case, why not tell them
to send the machine to standby with all applications running instead
of shutting it down? This will ensure that they'll be back in their
work within seconds, even if they have to type the passwords.

I know i never turn off my machines at work, or send them to standby
for that matter. I just lock them and turn of the screen.
