I'm aware that there is no Local Security Policy available in the Home edition of XP. So I'm looking for another way to disable a user account in XP Home. I don't want to delete the account, I just want to disable it and be able to re-enable it later on.

Been a while you asked this question. Maybe better late than never.

To disable an account (let's call the account Jim as example) just type this into a command window or the Run dialog.

net user Jim /active:no
To enable the account again type

net user Jim /active:yes
