Windows 7: Log on/off options

Log on/off options

For some reason the option to turn off user switching by forcing classic logon is not appearing as an option under control panel/users... Can anyone give me a pointer as to why this may be?

I don't think so. I thought I recall an option to disable the profile picture logon and switch to a 'classic' user name and password logon dialogue as you could in XP but maybe I was mistaken. What you have posted looks like effectively the same thing but still with a blank image for the user profile. I thought that this was also related to fast user switching which was turned off if the classic logon was selected...?

There is no classic logon UI any longer.
