    You can hide users from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList

    But I am not able to login that account again.

    I know you can set dontdisplaylastusername to show two textboxes for login, but I would like to show SOME of the other users in a list, and I can type in username for the others in addition.

    So that on the logon screen, I will have "UserA", "UserB", "UserC", and maybe one more "Other Accounts..." that will prompt for a username and password.

    Help!

    Some additional information:

    I want to show Administrator account in safe mode only, just like in XP.
    After a few trails, I think this is not quite possible, so I am trying to find an alternative, that is like this.

    Previously on XP, you can press Ctrl+Alt+Del 2 times to show the traditional logon box, but it is disabled in Windows 7, so I wonder how can I logon those hidden users, like Administrator, without showing it on the list in normal mode.
