Hi. I have a user account with administrator rights and privilege on Windows XP Pro and all of a sudden it is not showing up on the welcome screen. I have no way of logging into that account for which I have been using for the past 4 years now. The other restricted user account shows up on the welcome screen. I have checked the Local User and Group (compmgmt.msc) properties of the user account in question to see if the account was disable, and its not. I have also checked the setting in the registry HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft|windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList to see if my account in question is listed there and its not. What I have notice happen when my account stop showing up on the welcome screen is the sudden appearance of the Administrator account. One more note, the user account in question also have administrator rights and privilege for which it had since it was created. I need HELP, any ideas? Thanks for any help or suggestion anyone may have.
