    Unable to See User Account on Login Screen


    I have two user accounts on my PC - Staff and Administrator. I loaded Win7 a few days ago and created the Staff account. Earlier today, I changed the Staff account from an Administrator to a Standard account. I was logged on as Staff when I did it. I then logged off and back on and when I did, only the Administrator account was on the login screen.

    The Staff account still exists under Local Users and Groups. I disabled it, restarted and then reenabled it but no change. I don't think that it had a password when I deleted it - I don't add the password until I am done with the machine to make it easier - so many reboots.

    The PC has Win7 Pro x86 and is on a workgroup. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello JolietTech, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    While logged in to your Administrator account, see if you may be able to enable the Staff account using one of the other options in the tutorial below.

    Hope this helps for now, :)
