Log On to Windows screen - remove last logged in user?

    I'm sure there is a way of not displaying the login name of the last
    user to log in at a windows XP Professional PC.

    But I can't find out how!

    I have looked on MSN, and googled, but I must be using the wrong
    terms...

    Thanks

    There is...

    Start

    Run

    GPEDIT.MSC

    That opens the Group Policy Editor snap-in within the MMC (Microsoft
    Management Console). Navigate your way down the folder tree in the left pane
    as follows:

    Local Computer Policy

    Computer Configuration

    Windows Settings

    Security Settings

    Security Options

    With Security Options selected in the left pane the following option will
    become available in the right-hand pane:

    Interactive logon: Do not display last user name

    Double-Click that and change the radio button to Enabled
