Go to key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

SpecialAccounts\UserList

Inside UserList, create a DWORD (32-bit), name it same was the user you want to hide, set it value to 0 to hide, 1 to show the user in welcome screen.

I wanted to hide user "flashwebhost" as it is used only when others access the share.
