    This behavior is by design. When you create a user with administrative privileges, the built in administrative account will no longer appear on the login screen. You can still access the built-in administrator account by press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at the log-in screen and typing Administrator, if you are using XP Pro. If you are using XP Home edition, you can acess that account by starting the system in Safe Mode.

    Try
    CTRL, ALT, DEL twice (quickley) at the login screen, then enter your admin
    account details.
