Default Removing users from Welcome screen

I am using "normal" (non-simple) windows file sharing and thus have to maintain several users that will never log on from the welcome screen. I am wondering how one hides users from this screen. I know it can be done, but I can't seem to find it in the computer management tool.

i haven't tried this but found it in a search.

Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserLis t.
Note: There is a space between Windows and NT.

Add the username you wish to hide as a DWORD value. Set the value to 0 (zero). 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 Win2K logon, 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.
