Re: Hide user but keep enabled for UAC
Thanks for the response. As I mentioned, I was able to use the .NET tool
someone posted called "elevate" to do it without rebooting into safe mode.
It sounds like there is no way to hide all the "admin" accounts from the
welcome screen? The reason I ask is because I am using my machines as a
"user" account, understanding that UAC should take care of all my 'admin'
needs. Unfortunately, Having 2 "me"s show up at the welcome screen is just
a tad bit annoying
