O.P. RE: How do you hide a administrator
it was but there is a easyer way

you do this: start > control panel > peformance and maintence > in other icons > administrative tools > computer management > local users and groups (along the side) > users > right click on administrator > change password > once changed > log off totally > click Ctrl Alt Del twice > enter Administrator (with capital A) > then the password you choose

That just changes the administrator accounts password, he want to make another user, make it an administrator and then hide it from the Welcome Screen...

The link that ~INVISION~ gave you will do this perfectly (Y)

Or you can use TweakUI (direct link here) to hide accounts. It's a very handy tool for accessing settings that aren't displayed (Y)

Like this:

Update:
What doesn't work? Remember that you most likely need to restart.

Does the account you are using to install it have admin privileges?

RE: How do you hide a administrator
Try doing this:

[list=1][*]Open Registry Editor.
[*]In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:
code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
[*]Create the following entry:

Username: REG_DWORD

(Where Username is the username of the user you want to hide from the Welcome Screen).
[*]Assign a value of 0.
[*]Close Registry Editor.
[*]Reboot.
[/list]
This will prevent the user from showing up on the welcome screen. You will need to press CTRL-ALT-DEL twice at the logon screen to get the old W2K logon style box to be able to logon to the account you've hidden. Adding a username and setting the value to 1 will cause that user, such as Administrator, to show up on the Welcome screen as well.
