I very much doubt that such a registry setting exists. The mere possibility of doing such a thing, even if it was very difficult, would be an enormous security risk. IT managers would demand that Microsoft remove the setting.

The best that you can do is to set a blank password for the account in question.

I once saw a guy do this, however i cant remember whether he regedit or whether he deleted some or other file in the windows directory....

I just know that whatever was used as the password worked. So the user is oblivious because when they capture their password it works, but in actual fact whatever is typed works.

I need to monitor my sons pc, but would like to do so without him knowing, he has the habit of downloading anything and everything and i would like to monitor this....

You have two issues here. One is the actual question and the second is control.

It may be possible to capture the login but you can get that other ways too.

Second is that has little to do with any sort of controls. What is needed is a computer locked away from your son that acts as a router/firewall. All traffic from his computer would need to be checked. See for a software that would do that.

Less drastic would be to use a home router to help secure the connection. Shame that every ISP isn't forced to provide some sort of parental controls that kids can't bypass. There are things like netnanny and others that help protect and even norton or mcaffee can be set to deny access.
