Hiding the vmware_user account

After I install windows 7 successfully,I install VMware Server Workstation.When reboot the computer,I find the vmware user account appearing on the logon screen.As I known that system will create vmware user account after installing VMware.But it don't show on the logon screen.Now i has the question.How to hide this account in windows 7?

It’s a simple method to hide this account.Note you must be the "administrator"

1.Click"start"->"run"->type "regedit" and press "Enter" to Open Registry Editor
2. navigate to
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
3.If it does not already exist, create a key named SpecialAccounts
4.Below the SpecialAccounts key create another key named UserList
Create a new DWORD value (DWORD32 on x64) inside UserList named vmware_user account and ensure the 0 value
5.Close Registry Editor.Without reboot or logoff.

Command line for hide the vmware_user account in windows 7:
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList" /v __vmware_user__ /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f
