you do this: start > control panel > peformance and maintence > in other icons > administrative tools > computer management > local users and groups (along the side) > users > right click on administrator > change password > once changed > log off totally > click Ctrl Alt Del twice > enter Administrator (with capital A) > then the password you choose
(Where Username is the username of the user you want to hide from the Welcome Screen).
[*]Assign a value of 0.
[*]Close Registry Editor.
This will prevent the user from showing up on the welcome screen. You will need to press CTRL-ALT-DEL twice at the logon screen to get the old W2K logon style box to be able to logon to the account you've hidden. Adding a username and setting the value to 1 will cause that user, such as Administrator, to show up on the Welcome screen as well.
