Not if you disable fast user switching.

Which has the downside of not showing the users a login to pick. For some this adds more difficulty in remembering everything.

IIRC you can keep the welcome screen and disable the fast switching service.

The problem with multiple logins is what happens when the clerk comes in to do his work, but the computer is locked because someone else forgot to log out? And what if they left MLS running? Fast user switching could lead to more problems as MLS is not intended for multiple instances.

But that's not keeping with policy:
Other confidential files should not be stored on the hard drive. They should be saved on external media and locked in storage when not in use.
