>How to hide user account from the windows XP welcome screen




HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersion
WinlogonSpecialAccountsUserList
Here in right side panel, right click to create a new DWORD Value with the name of account to be hidden - the name matches the users name exactly.
To modify the "Value data" information as DWORD Value 0 to hide the account and 1 to display the user then click on Ok button.
Now close the registry editor and restart your computer after any changes to go into effect.
But next time, if you want to enable specific user account on welcome then simply change the value of data box to 1 or delete the DWORD Value item.
