This is a very simplistic question, but nonetheless it is annoying several of my users.

"I think this is in the Local Security Policy. Have a look in there. It was turned off (probably in SP2) for security reasons.

Yup - Local Policies > Security Options > Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name."

"Under Windows 7 this is in a difference place.
Start the Local Group Policy Editor by going to Start -> Run... and type gpedit.msc.
Then go to Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options -> Interactive logon: Do not display last user name"
