Windows® 7 Login Screen
How to disable 'Other User Login' screen from Windows 7?
If you have configured your system in a domain, then the login screen will display the other users login icon. This is provided in the Windows 7 system for ensuring the security of the system. The other user account can be used if administrator login has some problems. But, you may sometimes need to disable the other user logon screen. This may be because other users of the domain may start to login to the system without administrator permissions. There are some tips to disable the other user login screen in the Windows 7 system. You can try removing the user option by the use of registry editor. For this, you need to open the 'UserList' folder from 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' in the 'Registry Editor'. You can then set the values of userlist keys to 0.
