    Step 1
    First create a new user account in xp,through user accounts.

    Step 2
    Go to RUN type regedit and open
    Code:
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList" .
    
    Step 3
    In the right side you can where you see a list just right click in empty area and select a new DWORD
    value and rename it to your user account's name.

    Step 4
    Just refresh the registry(F5).
    Wow! your account is not displayed in user accounts (nusrmgr.cpl)

    Step 5
    Now you can't see your account in logon screen so how to access it , just press ctrl+alt+del twice a new window opens at login screen.
    Enter your username and password(if not set leave it blank)



    Warning: Backup the registry before trying this ^^ ;-)



    EDIT

    To get the account back in list, delete the DWORD value.

    U got someone's PC unattended with Admin acces.

    U want to access it again but don't want to let him know.
    What do u do, create a new account and hide it from world.

    Only u will be able to know about it.

    But, wouldn't it create a account related folder in "Documents and Settings"??

    Actually the user is not hidden. If u go to computer management->Local user and groups->users (at right side pane u will see the hidden user) Which is not appearing in user account (nusrmgr.cpl)

    No that folder remains hidden

    If you have a limited account then to make your account hidden, start the computer in safe mode which is gonna have administrator privileges.

    Yeah Thats true. But only a geek will know that.

    Krazzy, when are you gonna stop Posting for the sake of posting?
    BTW there is no need to reply.

    Keep Guessing ;-)

    @Aspire, if admin account is password protected....hah what next you do.... Perhaps try to crack admin account?
    Keep in mind you can nothing if admin is smart and uses 'control user password 2'.
    And for second i dont need to guess...¿¿
