How do I skip the Switch User screen in Vista?

I have Vista Home Premium and I just want it to work like XP. In XP if you hit Windows+L it goes to the user selection screen. Vista puts an extra "Switch User" screen in. I'd prefer not to retrain the whole house to use CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+L. Is there a registry key or security policy setting for this?

Why not use a hotkey program (like AutoHotKey, HoeKey, etc) to remap Win+L to Ctrl+Alt+Shift+L?

There are a couple of ways to disable Fast User Switching. That way, you will just have your "normal" login.
