    You cannot do this. You can only hide the account from the Welcome
    screen in TweakUI > Logon. TweakUI is available from
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp.

    Right click on My Computer. Click Manage. Click Local Users and Groups.
    Click Users. Right click on the account to disable. Click Properties.
    Click Account is disabled.

    That`s if he is using XP Professional, XP Home Edition doesn`t give you that
    option to disable an account.

    Hi,

    You can hide the user folder, but at logon, you can still see the user logon
    icon or if you have classic logon window, just type in the account logon id.
