Windows 7: How do I hide the Windows 7 locked icon

How do I hide the Windows 7 locked icon

When my Windows 7 domain joined PC is locked, I get the 'Press CTRL - ALT - Delete to unlock this computer' screen. After pressing CAD, my profile icon is displayed with the word 'domain\username & Locked' below it. I have to then click this icon (or press enter) to get the password box. How do I get just the password box after pressing CAD and not this 'Locked' icon?

There's no fix for that. You'll have to click on the icon or just hit spacebar/enter.

Didn't work. The funny thing is I have a PC right next to me that doesn't have the problem. Same OS, Same user, Same domain. Password box comes up after press CAD.

Is there another user to select from on the login screen?

Nope, just my user account.

I wonder if there is a Guest or Administrator account enabled on your box but hidden, which could account for the reason yours isn't the default selection (why, I don't know, but it sounds like a possibility).

The old 'i'll hide your tray icon' ploy
Anyone else noted that the tray icons come and go, no matter how you define them in the Customize panel? Mostly when restoring a window and then minimizing it to tray again. A Show Icon and notifications becomes a Only notifications again.
