Hello Jan,

As far as I know, the only way to hide a user account on the log on screen without disabling it, would be to set Windows to require you to enter both the user name and password at log on like below instead.

Log On with User Name and Password

Hope this helps, :)

Hi Brinks, thanks for that tutorial but what i really want to happen is i want to have two accounts, the hidden Administrator account and Standard user account. I want to bypass the log-on screen by leaving my Standard user account with no password set and enable the hidden administrator account and i can only log-in to my Administrator account by logging-in to my standard user account first and then log off then it will show the log-on screen then if i press Alt+Ctrl+Del the hidden administrator log-on screen shows up like on Windows XP. Could this be possible to happened? Hope you guys understand what i said. Im poor in english so please bear with me, thank you very much :)
