Greetings, Austano!
   If you want a new user name in Log Off, delete all the old usernames. When you boot up, Windows will ask you for a new username. Type in the new name and it will be in your Log Off area.

Do a search for *.pwl files. Rename them to *.old. Reboot.

Best wishes, war1

Detailed Information:

Remove Log Off <Username> from the Start Menu (Windows 9x and NT)

To remove the Log Off <Username> command from the Start menu, use Registry Editor to modify the following key.

Note: This setting relies in Internet Explorer 4.0 or greater being installed.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Value Name: NoLogOff
Data Type: REG_BINARY
Data: 01 00 00 00
