    User account missing from Windows XP

    My sister has set up a new account on my PC running on Windows XP. Since then, I am not able to find my user account on login screen. In what way can I show up it again on login screen?

    Get into the start menu by clicking the ‘Start’ button on the bottom part of the desktop and click the ‘Run’ option. Enter regedit into the ‘Open’ field inside Run dialog box and hit the ‘Enter’ key. The Registry Editor window will pop up on the screen afterwards from which navigate into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \Winlogon \SpecialAccounts \UserList. Then, right click on the right pane and choose ‘New’ option from the available menu. After that, click on the ‘DWORD’ option to create a new item. Right click on that item and give the missing username for that. The next step required is to double click on it and type the value ‘1’ into the dialog box. Quit the registry editor and restart your PC to check whether the user account appears on the login screen.
