Annoyed by seeing many User Names in the Welcome Screen you can remove them

Some times a user needs to be added to access a network resource but the user

will not be physically logged in to your system.

In such cases you can remove his/her name from the WelcomeScreen in Xp

to do this go to Registry editor as normal go to

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENT

VERSION\WINLOGON\SPECIALACCOUNTS\USERLIST\

Right click in the empty space in the right pane and create a new DWORD value

Name this new value "Username" and enter "0" as the data value

you are done.If you want to enable this user again double click the USERNAME

and change DATAVALUE to "1"or delete the value

Forgive me for any spelling mistakes .Hope this is useful
