user account does not appear on regular startup

By bluespiano ·
I have Windows XP. Recently, I created a new user account. My old account, Administrator, now no longer appears on a regular startup. However, it does appear in Safe Mode. What is the problem and what is the solution?

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Is the new account also an admin account? I can't say for sure, but it seems to me that the default admin account generally does disappear from the welcome screen once you create another - or possibly because you use the welcome screen at all.
