    Hi all,

    If somebody wanted to in Vista:
    -Have an admin account not visible (hidden) at the Welcome screen, and
    -still be able to log onto that account, and
    -have other standard users log-on without having to use CTRL-ALT-DEL.
    How would it be done?

    This is a Workgroup environment, and I'm old fashioned and like the way Win
    XP treated the Administrator account being hidden, but one could still
    CTRL-ALT-DEL to the classic logon if the user got themselves locked out.

    Thanks,
    Ed Hall

    Hello Ed,

    That option has been removed in Vista. An alternative is to use the log
    on with user name and password option. This way none of the accounts are
    displayed.

    Hope this helps,
