modify local security policy from command prompt in Windows 7?

Hey all I am trying to enable the "do not display last user name" in Local security policies via command prompt but am hitting dead ends. I have to do this to around a hundred computers and was hoping I could just write a batch file to do so but can't figure out the command... The path to it is "Local Security Policy>Local Policies>Security options>Interactive logon: Do not display last use name." If anyone could help it would be absolutely awesome.

Are the computers part of a domain? If so you can set this in the domain policy.

No they are not on a Domain. They are stand alone. That is why I was kinda hoping I could just use a batch file.

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
