Hello Aaron, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but I'm not aware of any way to add a picture to the box when it's set to require both a user name and password at log on.

Hello Aaron,

The tutorial on the first page is just at startup and log on screen.

You could use step 4 in the tutorial below for the lock screen.

Hi Brink,
well it works, but in windows 7 HOME PREMIUM you cannot log on at a standard account,
you can log on only on adminstrator accounts.
Is there any way to have this option enabled and also to be able ta access the standard accounts?

Hello Charli,

You should just be able to type in the user name and password of any account on the computer to log in to it.

If you renamed the account, try using the original name to see if it may work.

Thanks for the quick response mate,
well yes, i changed the name of the standard account following the great guide mate always by you
Code:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/147545-user-profile-folder-change-user-account-folder-name.html
now i'll try to create another standard account and try that way,will keep updated.

EDIT:
it works just fine with a created newly standard user, but sadly it doesn't work with a renamed user.

Option Two in W7 Home Premium locks all accounts out!

I realize this is an old thread. Hopefully not so old there will be no reply, though.

I am setting up a new W7 Home Premium desktop. I had created one admin account and one regular user account and all was going fine. I hoped to implement the "Log on with User Name and Password" as explained in the tutorial.

I followed the instructions for Option Two. It is so trivial (change one registry item from 0 to 1) that I figured the risk would be minimal.

However, while I do now have a logon screen that asks for both User Name and Password, neither of the accounts' User/Pass info allowed in! Either one gets the "user/pass not valid" message.

Suggestions very welcome, as you can imagine! I should have read the thread more carefully before trusting the tutorial, I guess-- and paid heed to the sage old advice to always avoid messing with the registry.

So as you can guess, now that I am locked out entirely, I went back and read the entire thread more carefully. My unpleasant outcome seems to be the same as what happened to Darkdemise50 and olsyboy. Apparently I am not the first one to be completely locked out, and unable to even attempt any other fix, on following this tutorial.

What next?

Thank you in advance.

Hello ReluuctantSysAdm, and welcome to Seven Forums.

All three options are just different ways to set the same setting.

If these are domain users, then you would need to type "Computer Name/User name" instead of just the user name in the "User name" field.

If you have renamed these user accounts, then see if using the old name may work.

If nothing helps, then you could boot into Safe Mode, and set dontdisplaylastusername back to 0.
