Today I encountered a strange problem: the main Windows account on my computer, the “Administrator” one, was missing after a reboot. The only available account was the second that I set some time ago, so I logged in with this one.
I want to share with everyone how I did to restore Administrator user. It was very simple (even if I still don’t understand the reason because it disappeared!).
Basically, it was simply excluded from the “Welcome screen“: the quickest way to restore it is TweakUI for Windows XP, a free Microsoft tool.
Just open it, go to Logon options and activate the Administrator account (or any other account that is no more available into the Welcome screen).
Now reboot… et voilà
