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

Now that I have hidden an account.
How do I log in from the welcome screen
Clicking ctr;+alt+del twice does not work on Vista Home Premium like good
old XP

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
