Hello Everyone,
Newbe here, My name is Kim :D

I was wondering and hoping someone would be kind enough to answer a question for me
and help me understand abit better...

I know abit about computers but i'm no super wiz thats for sure lol :D

My question is about super users.
I have read abit about super users,
How you can hide an account from showing up at the logon screen,
And to reveal it to logon you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete

I am running Windows XP Professional Version 2002

My question is, If you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the logon screen
Will the super user logon screen always appear or only if one is set..

Thankyou kindly

In Windows XP Professional the built in admin account, is available by pressing Ctrl Alt delete TWICE at the logon screen., whereas in XP home it is only available in Safe Mode, as indeed it is in XP., as well as the Ctrl Alt Delete.
Also see this here please


Basically a Super User is a User Account with full admin rights.

There are various tweaks available to alter the way these log-in procedures etc behave, but I would caution against the use of most of them, NOT offered by Microsoft as messing about with accounts and permissions is one of the quickest ways to ensure you have problems.

CAUTION again be careful of any answers you find that entail registry edits or tweaks that can be downkloaded as self executing files , as these do the same thing.
The problem is that when things then go wrong, recovery can be more or less impossible
