Go to control panel -> User Accounts -> Manage Another Account 

Now check the list of accounts available there and remove the account which you are not using also if the Guest Account is enabled , do disable it.

Step 2:In the left panel, right click on Winlogon and click New and click Key. Type SpecialAccounts and press Enter
 
Step 3:In the left panel, right click on SpecialAccounts and click New and click Key. Type UserList and press Enter.
 
Step 4 :In right panel of UserList, right click on a empty area and click New then click DWORD (32bit) Value.
 
Step 5:Type in the name of the user account that you want to hide and press Enter.eg: Everyday Account.In the right panel, right click on the user account name and click Modify.
