 Hide Windows XP User

Posted: 10/19/2007
Open the registry by clicking on Start --> Run --> Then type Regedit and click OK.
Navigate to the following key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList\
You will create a new key of DWORD Type specified as "REG_DWORD" below.
Name the new entry the username you would like to Hide.
Then Set the value to 0 which is the default.
Below in the example you can see the ASPNET user is already set to 0 which is why it's not visible when you login to your computer.
This process can be used to either turn on or turn off hidden accounts.
