if you look on the net you will see there are linux live disks specifically setup to reset the password. you need to accept that unless you encrypt the hard drive all your data is available to anyone.

That and:
Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > Interactive Login: Do not display last username: enabled

this will prompt you for a username everytime.

Hi, paul3200.

As I posted at another site today, if there isn't a tutorial at SevenForums for what you want to customize in Windows 7, it probably isn't possible to be done.

To accomplish requiring a user name at log on see this tutorial: Log On with User Name and Password
