Just yesterday, I created a separate user account for my parents on my laptop with no password yet. But today, my account does not appear at all on the log on screen and logs on directly to my parent's account instead. I've searched through the user accounts setting, but have found no trace of my originally admin account to change the settings. But I do still have my saved folders in my C and D Drives...

How can I get my default account back? Its gone from the log on screen! ]:

I also tried doing this:
type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes)
Next to my admin account, it says debugger User. What does that mean?

Show Administrator on the Welcome Screen

4 Options:

At the logon screen press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice to bring up the logon window
which then allows you to log on as Administrator


Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList

Add the DWORD value 'Administrator' with a value of '1'

Download TweakUI http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/...
Under Logon settings page "Show [Administrator] on the Welcome Screen".

Run this tweak: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/reg...
