|Thanks for reply, unfortunately it still doesn't do what I want. I'm assuming at some point the user will screw the system so he cannot log on to his account and I'll need to rescue it. In XP, it was just a case of starting in safe mode which made the (already active) administrator account visible at the logon screen. This isn't available in Vista/Win7, if I pre-activate the administrator account as suggested it becomes available immediately in normal mode, which I don't want - the user will want to know why he cannot have the 'administrator' account, he'll start using it, screw up both accounts and I'll end up having to do a reinstall.|
I simply need the administrator account to be available in safe mode only.
I'd thought about setting auto login, but I'm not sure what happens if the account being auto-logged in becomes inaccessible.
