I have a user, me, who has quit showing up on the login screen even though that name is still present under Documents and Settings.
How do I get it to show up?
thanks,

Have you used any tweak programs or anything recently that might of changed the list of people that show up on the login screen? I've seen options to change the listed users in tweak programs, but not sure where to change it if just using XP

Not that I know of. It shows up in safe mode and I can login with that name. I'll have to check out one of the tweak things, maybe I can get it back that way.

Qumahlin,
It's an admin acct. I've since discovered that these don't show up on the regular login. Correct?
thanks for reply

Well, I can log on as an admin with the "lost" identity in safe mode, but in the regular boot I get "Unable to log on due to an account restriction". Then I can logon as my other admin id.
Anyone know what's up with that?
thanks again,

If you are using XP home you can only login to the named "administrator" account from safe mode.

If you are using XP pro just download the MS powertoys and you can set it to show the admin acct on the login screen
