Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'd like to be able to, in addition to setting up CAD and a message at logon, to be able to not allow the system to list all users on the system, in Windows 7 Professional (64bit)

How do I go about doing this? Also, if a user has their user name as "FirstName LastName", how would they enter that into the login screen after the easy listing of users is disabled?

I do not believe this to be possible. This is an underline functionality of Windows since Windows XP. –  Ramhound Jun 25 '12 at 16:54

But you could disable it in XP. –  Thomas W. Jun 25 '12 at 16:56

Using the Group Policy Editor (the same as in the linked question) go to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Logon and enable the "Always use classic logon" option. You may need to reboot.

Note that this only works if you've already configured the system to require Ctrl+Alt+Del at logon.

Thanks, that worked. –  Thomas W. Jun 26 '12 at 12:30
    
Actually I lied, it worked until I restarted another time, and it failed. Any other suggestion? –  Thomas W. Jun 26 '12 at 14:02
    
It should work; perhaps the setting got reverted somehow? –  Harry Johnston Jun 27 '12 at 21:33
    
Nope, its still showing up, and the policy is enabled. –  Thomas W. Jun 27 '12 at 22:26
