Hello lambentmarkus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could disable the user account to no longer have it show up on the log on screen.

User Account - Enable or Disable

If you don't want to disable the user account, then you could set Windows to require users to enter both their user name and password on the log on screen to no longer see any users on the log on screen.

Log On with User Name and Password

Hope this helps, :)

I actually saw one of your solutions to this issue but they're really not solving what I want. I don't want to disable and if I do it the other way there will still be an empty user icon. Is there not a way to completely remove the login user icon? If not, is there a way to make the user login icon empty (without adapting it manually to its background)?

What I posted will make the user icon empty, and only have one on the log on screen.

There's this below, but it is risky to do. One mistake could cause issues.

Delete the user account :)

Why do you have it if you don`t want it on the welcome/logon screen ?

I actually did try the "risky" one, but I had no success. By that I mean literally nothing happened and it stayed the same.

Remove the Login Screen Icon
Okay, I've been changing the Login Screen Background, but what I really want to do is remove the Icon (the User Account Picture). I want to remove the whole thing, I just want my Username Showing and a box under it to type the Password. Is that possible? I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
