User account has disappeared.

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

The New user Account you made becomes the Default User Account and the Administrator Account which shouldn't be used remains as an Emergency In for the computer. This is the way that XP is supposed to work.
