How to hide user names from the logon screen

Hiding user names enhances security. Attackers have to guess both username and password. It is also useful when you have a forced account setup in your computer.

You can hide user names by editing the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
