View Admin At welcome Screen

By default windows XP doesn't show the Administrator in the user list at the welcome screen. Here's a way to get around it.
Step1: Start > Run Type regedit and click Ok Step2: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\Userlist
Step3: Create a new DWORD entry and name it as Administrator and change its value to 1.
Step4: Exit and reboot for the changes to take effect.
Step5: To change it back change its value to 0 or simply delete the key.
