[[On a Windows XP Professional-based computer that is a member of a
workgroup, you have the option of using the friendly logon interface as
opposed to the classic Windows logon interface. If you add a second user
that has administrative privileges, the built-in Administrator account does
not appear during the friendly logon method. ]]

The Administrator account exists in Windows XP Home Edition, but it does not
typically appear on the Welcome logon screen. In Windows XP Home Edition
the Administrator account is not displayed in User Accounts unless the
computer is in Safe mode. You have to boot into Safe Mode to access the
Administrator account in User Accounts.

Start | Settings | Control Panel | User Accounts

To start the computer in safe mode
