"Home Premium does not include the Local Security Policy Manager so you'll need to do a registry modification to enable the classic logon.

Click on start and type "regedit.exe" withot quotes into the search field, hit enter.

Expand the registry key:


Double-click on “dontdisplaylastusername” in the right pane and then modify the value to “1″

Try this. Advanced Boot Options

Select Repair you computer. From there select Restore your computer.
Select a date before you made the registry change.

That should fix it.

If all you want to do is get rid of Adminiostrator on the login screen, open a Elevated Command prompt and enter

net user Administrator active:no

That will disable the Administrator account and it will no longer show up on the Login screen. To enable it again:

net user Administrator active:yes
