Open regedit
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
Select the user name you want to hide and change it's value to 0.

Note: If keys SpecialAccounts and UserList does not exist, you can create them accordingly. To add a user, create a new DWORD32 with the value name = <username you want to hide> and a value data = 0. You can do this to all the accounts you want to hide from the welcome screen.

Hope that answers your question.

Cheers
Great! Thanks for the info and response Nos. Will have a look at it. I just cant understand why MS wouldnt make a more user friendly visible option. A simple checkmark box would be suffice, maybe along with a possible "advanced" button or similar. Feedback i guess

thanks again

Ok, now on same vpn thing. No problems setting up, i just have a gripe now and wonder if there is a fix, i cant find one. Problem is, after creating user/pass for vpn, it now puts that user on the welcome screen. Now if say i had a somewhat dedicated vpn machine, and setup numerous users, I dont want them all cluttered up on the welcome screen. I went thru properties and also user accounts and seen nothing. Just that of course the vpn users dont show up under user accounts.

Is there a "fix" for this brad... or should i fire up the feedback?
not sure what you mean but i used an existing account when i set it up so no additional account was put on the login screen .
if you setup numerous accounts on one machine then you need to see them at welcome screen or you wont be able to use them anyway .

cheers brad

He most likely created a separate account for VPN logins, so he does not want to see that account on the login screen since it's not used for local logins.

I have the same setup - an account called Remote User, which I use when I log into the system via VPN.

Also, it comes in handy when you install VMWare, or say Apache2Triad, which install their own user accounts under which they run services, but it'd suck to see them on the login screen

Anyone know where it is?
