XP Login

By BorgInva ·
Before I go searching endless answers.......
My login has got to be corrupted. It does not show up on the welcome screen (my login box). Logged in (it boots automaticlly into it using TweakUI), I go into USER ACCOUNTS and my account is set on LIMITED. It was originally ADMIN. I can not change it back because it is not in the WELCOME SCREEN.
Any dieas how to fix this, or is creating a new login the way to go?

Sorry. I do get the ADMIN account but the login for my account is not there. My login, let us say MAIN, is not shown at all. Just ADMIN, Guest, and another ADMIN acct I made last night. The account, MAIN, I am using is only logging in using TweakUI. There is no profile for it on the Welcome screen.

As the XP puter boots tap the F8 key, when the boot menu appears, choose Safe Mode, press enter, then it will ask Windows XP? Press enter...After it boots Choose the Admin Logon, then go to Control panel, Users...Change the other User Logon and rights there.

Good Luck! (BTW, you will see both the Admin. & Limited User Accounts of the listed users when in safe mode, but won't see both in Normal Start Mode-Only the Limited). Don't ask me why!
