Default Help Needed - Windows 7 Welcome Screen

Since my son is getting older and likes to play games on the Lego.com, Nick Jr., and other sites, we thought it was time to setup a separate account for him so that we could set controls and keep him safe.

That much was easy, but I'm having trouble getting the Windows 7 welcome screen to act like it did with XP. What I'd like to have is to show all local accounts on the welcome screen.

Here's the account break down.

Monique - my wife's admin account. No password.
Ben - my son's new standard user account. No password.
NetAcc - a standard user account to share local resources. Password protected.
Guest - disabled

Something else that I'm running into is when the welcome screen comes up as it is now, it displays a username or password is incorrect. It's trying to log into something, which isn't want I want.

Here's what I've tried so far.

I'm sure it's something stupid that I'm missing, but I've been looking at the damn thing for so long that I think it's time for a set of fresh eyes.

I am not sure how to fix this, but I do know one thing: Windows' login tweaks are a pain in the ass. You might want to go to the run line and type in "control userpasswords2" and see if anything in there strikes you. I wish I was of more use... I don't have multiple accounts on my PC and really don't want to risk creating one in case it creates hassles for me, haha. =|

I've been there a bunch of times thinking that I missed something. All that does is allow you to remove the password requirement for login, which is something that I did want to setup at this time. When Ben gets older, I'll put the password requirement back on.

In order to get the welcome screen to look the way I want, I think I need to dive into the registry, but what I've done doesn't do what I was hoping.
