    Hide an account at logon?

    Is there any way I can hide an account at log on (Home Premium)?

    cheers,

    Bob,
    Many thanks, had to delete and recreate the account for some
    reason but it's now gone from the login options.

    cheers,

    Hi Jeff,

    If the account is hidden, you will not be able to logon to it. You will have to logon to another account or unhide it to be able to logon to it again.

    If you hid your only account, then see if you can boot into Safe Mode and unhide it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
