    Auto-Login Into Windows Locked Account

    I don't know if this is possible, but when I boot my computer, I want it to
    automatically log in to my password protected account, but it be locked at
    the same time. So if/when I enter my password, all of my programs are
    already running. I know I can use the netplwiz command, and this will log in
    to my user account but the computer will be unlocked.

    The reason I need this is not only do I need my computer secure, but if the
    computer rebooted for whatever reason, my programs will continue to run.
