User Account Not Showing Up On Login Screen

On my windows xp system I have 2 Administrator accounts and two standard user accounts. Today when I booted my system I found that my own user account is missing from the login screen. Rest 3 user accounts are visible. When I logged in with the second administrator account, I found that still my main admin account is visible under Control Panel > User Accounts. Then why is it not visible on the login screen? Please help.

Re: User Account Not Showing Up On Login Screen

You would need to create a new admin account and and copy your older settings to the new one. To know how to do the same check this MS KB:
