Admin account still on Welcome screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have SteadyState installed on a new machine and the admin account still shows up on the Welcome Screen even when I have the Remove Administrator accounts from welcome screen box checked.

    I have browsed the forum and found several suggestions to deal with that.

    What I would like is know what is considered to be the correct way to fix the issue? The last thing I want to do is muck around trying several different ways.

    I am also just wondering why the option doesn't work. The machine is running XP home edition.

    Thank you

  • Hi Alex, you can uncheck the option "Remove the Administrator user name from the Welcome screen" – restart the computer – recheck it and see the result. This issue may occur if the restriction somehow did not change the registry entry or group policy accordingly. Most likely, we can resolve it by reconfigure the option in SteadyState. Hope this helps!
