This Action1 query verifies that generic "admin" credentials are not used to login to user workstations and makes sure that all users logon using their own unique domain credentials. It looks at all local user profiles (associated with both domain and local users) as well as all non-disabled local user accounts. The output of this query mark each endpoint as either compliant or non-compliant with section 8.1.1 with an explanation of what needs to be changed (such as removal of user profile or disabling of all local users).
