.. or more specifically, removing a user's interactive login right.
Sometimes, especially on a development VM without a domain, you will find that accounts such as the document conversions user, or the config account appear in the logon list. This is an annoyance, since you don't want SPConfigAcct to login.
Here is how to fix it -
- Run gpedit.msc
- Go to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment, and look for "Deny log on locally".
- Double click "Deny logon locally" and add all the accounts that you'd rather not have login/appear on the logon screen.
Hit OK - that's it. This should fix it.
