Hide an account from the welcome screen

As in title, how would I do it? The account would still be usable for it's privileges, granting access for standard users when necessarily, but not be visible at logon.

I've done this, and it's succeeded but overdid it: It also hides the account from the, uh, UAC. Almost locked myself out :3

ugh haven't had my coffee this morning. I'm pretty sure the change you want to make is in security policies, but I can't for the life of me think what it is at the moment.
