Windows 7 User RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi guys, is it possible in windows 7 to hide a user account during normal boot up, but if the user login to safe mode, the user account will display. just like in windows xp, the administrator account will show up in safe mode.

    is it possible to do this in win 7 also? thank you.

  • Hi,

     

    There is a built-in administrator account. If you haven't any administrator accounts, and this built-in Administrator account is disabled, you can reboot PC in Safe Mode, you will see this administrator account.

  • There is a way to hide a user during normal boot using a registry hack. But I'm not sure if that user is then visible in Safe Mode. If you want that RegHack let me know and ill try locate it again.
