You appear to be using one of the Vista Home editions, which does not include
useful tools like secpol.msc or gpedit.msc.
Try going to Run and type in 'control userpasswords2' (yes, include the 2)
and contuinue at the UAC prompt. If you do not see the name of a created user
that you made, click add and enter information for that new user. Switch
users and your new account should be there. If you still do not see the new
account or if the name is already on the list, go to Run again and type
'regedit'. Look for the key
and create a new DWORD (32-bit) value with the name of your newly created
user. Give it a value of one (1). Now look at your logon screen. If your user
is still not there, go to the following URL
and download the program and install it. It says that it wants you to pay
ten bucks, but i got it for free. Once you have it installed, run it as an
administrator (right-click and press the annoying shield), and see if the
account is on that list. If it is, be sure that the account you just made is
not disabled. If it is, uncheck the box. If you do not see it, click 'Server'
and 'Add User'. You should know what to do from here. Tell me how it goes.
