Hey ho, I may sound a bit of a dolt but...

When I Startup in Safe Mode, only mine and an "Admin" account are availabe. That's fine...only I need to see my mum's too (sometimes, all I really have to do is move programs over into mine, I'm just lazy :thumbsup: )

:/ So what's this other account? Any clues, or is there nothing a girl can do?

The "Admin" account you can see is the built in XP admin account - it's the way XP was designed. The reason you can't see your mum's account is that I believe that only accounts with admin privileges are available in Safe Mode.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
