JSI Tip 3987. Cover Your Tracks (CYT) freeware.

Marty List brings us CYT freeware, which allows you to change the default user name that is shown at the logon prompt. This is useful when you have logged onto a user's computer and don't want them to lock out your account by typing their password with your UserName.

The readme contains:

Cover Your Tracks version 2.50

A default user logon utility for Windows.  Allows you to change 
the default user ID shown at the next logon.

Use Cyt.exe /? to view the optional command-line syntax.
