Windows 7 - hide a user account from login

The user you want to disable from seeing on windows 7 login, is "Username".

Copy and paste the below registry snippet into notepad or your favorite text editor, change "Username" to be whatever user account you want to not see on windows login screen, save it as a file with .reg extension type. (ie disablelogin.reg).  After saving, just double-click to import the setting and you are done.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList]
