Hide Welcome Screen Users posted to GitHub

If anyone has a suggestion for a better name than “Hide Welcome Screen Users” please feel free to drop me a line :).

Basically it’s just a very small tool written in C#/.NET that allows you to hide users from the Welcome Screen in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2.  I needed to create several users that performed system tasks, and it was annoying to see them on my Welcome Screen every time I booted up.  There’s an easy way in the registry to prevent specific users from showing up there, so this tool is basically just a small tool that edits those registry keys.

It’s checked in at: https://github.com/aplocher/Welcome-Screen-Hide-Users.  Please let me know if you find any issues with it.
