Hidden Account help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I recently made a hidden account through the registry editor. However, i can not  reveal them on the windows logon menu through ctrl-alt-delete. What should I do? I am using an Hp model computer running Windows 7.

  • Presumably you have changed a user key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList.

    If so, have you tried reversing the hidden status by changing the registry value to 1, check if it is now showing on the log on screen and then hide it again.
