Windows 7: Hide enabled Administrator count from normal logon screen

Hide enabled Administrator count from normal logon screen

I want to leave Administrator enabled but I do not want to see the Administrator account show on the normal Logon screen. I only want to see it if I boot to Safe Mode like XP Home used to do?

Possible?

No ... I DO NOT want to disable Administrator.

Hey Rich,

About the only way that I know of to come close to this would be to set Windows to require users to enter both a user name and password at log in instead of just a password. This way no users are displayed at log in.

Log On with User Name and Password

Hope this helps.

Thanks Shawn but that isn't what I want. I'd like it to work like it did on XP Home where the only time you wouldsee Administrator is when you booted to Safe mode.

I disabled Administrator for now, since it can be enabled from the WinRE environment if I need it.

Admin and Standard Account Users
Someone else was wanting the same thing. I gave brink suggestion which he said he will deal with for now. The only other way I know is to use a completely custom log in screen. But that has a chance of screwing things up bad. So I don't really want to dive into that. But if that's what you really want, you could Google search it.

Thanks but I'll stick with Administrator being disabled. I know how to enable it from a WinRE (install disc) environment so if I need to get to teh Administrator account I can, it just takes longer.
