"Other User" logon tile in Win 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am deploying Win 7 profesional throughout our school on a domain.  On deskotp and laptops we get the following after hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del.  See Picture below.  Is there anyway to hide or replace this tile with an image.

    To hide additional user accounts on Windows & Logon Use Regedit, also works for Vista

    at Run type regedit

    Once in regedit go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon


    In the left panel, right click on Winlogon and click New and click Key. 

    Type SpecialAccounts and press Enter


    In the left panel, right click on SpecialAccounts and click New and click Key.


    Type UserList and press Enter.


    In right panel of UserList, right click on a empty area and click New then click DWORD (32bit) Value. 

    Type in the name of the user account that you want to hide and press Enter.eg: Everyday Account. 

     In the right panel, right click on the user account name and click Modify. 

     To hide the user account – Type 0 and click OK. (number zero not the letter)

    Whenever you want to use the account just unhide the it by typing 1 instead of zero.

  • Thank you sir for the reply but I forgot to mention that I am strictly logging on to a domain via wireless.  I have tried your suggestion but it did not work.  I appreciate your time.
