Windows 7 X64 Welcome Screen

I set up a Windows 7 Professional X64 box with 6 users. I do not want the welcome screen showing all six choices so... I did the control userpasswords2 and told it that the users needed to press ctrl-alt-del to log on thinking that would let them enter their username and password as it use to in XP

It didn't. All it did was force the use of ctrl-alt-del and one that was press then came up the welcome screen showing the six users.

Is there any way to get rid of the welcome menu and force the users to enter a valid username and password?

Try the following:

Start Run control userpasswords2 and in the Advance Tab, require users to press Ctrl-Alt-Del to login.

Now in Admin Tools, Local Security Policy, Local Policies, Security Options, and then for Interactive Login  ENABLE do not display last user name.

I do this and I just get the screen requiring user name (not a list) and password.
