To only remove the icon without disabling the Administrator account, copy and paste the following into notepad:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList]
"Administrator"=dword:00000000
---
This worked for me. For those unsure how to do this. Copy and paste into new notepad text doc as advised by Crtnmn and save file as .reg format. Right-click file and select Merge.
Next time you log on the Administrator icon is no longer present on logon window.
Thanks heaps Crtnmn

Ctrl-Alt-Del

Everything worked to enable the administrator account and then hide the icon using the registry script. The problem now is that using Ctrl-Alt-Del at the logon screen does nothing. The whole point was to activate the hidden administrator account, then hide the icon from the welcome screen but still have access to it when you need it by using Ctrl-Alt-Del. Any suggestions?
