Run regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

Delete DefaultUsername and DefaultPassword. Change AutoAdminLogin to 0 (zero).

Control panel.. Users and Passwords uncheck the box that says Assume this user always logs on (or something like that)

Answer 1 is for NT4.0
Answer 2 would work but is a long way around
