The Windows XP trick worked for me:
1. Start the Registry Editor by clicking Start -> Run -> regedit.exe.
2. Create a new Key with the name SpecialAccounts in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon

3. Create a new Key with the name UserList in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonSpecialAccounts

4. Open the UserList key and add for each user you don’t want to show a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with 0 as value.

Example you can import and edit:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonSpecialAccountsUserList]
"Guest"=dword:00000000
"SomeServiceAccount"=dword:00000000

Usernames of users can be found in the Local Users and Groups manager (start -> run -> lusrmgr.msc) or via start -> run -> cmd -> net user

Good luck! 😉
