Hide Hidden Administrator icon

Am setting up a PC for a group and need the hidden admin account to be enabled but I do not wish to show the icon to all users. I have used this code to hide the icon:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList]
"Administrator"=dword:00000000
This works OK but Ctrl + Alt + Del does not show the icon as i believe it should when I need it. Any ideas please?

Hey Mitchell,

If you like, another option would be to set it where all users must enter both their user name and password at log in. This will prevent the Administrator and all users icons from being seen at log in.

Log On with User Name and Password
