Default Super Hidden Account

I am currently using XP Pro SP2 and is it possible to create a super hidden (and functional) user account? I dont want the account to appear in "User Accounts" in the Control panel nor in "Local Users and Groups" console snap-in (lusrmgr.msc). Also, I use the classic login box.

One more thing: I tried to add the account to the userlist under "specialaccounts" in the registry, but it didnt work.

No, I don't think this is possible although you can hide the files..
Just set the account to private and the files will be hidden.

Windows XP does have a hidden administrator account in it. however other than using that I am not aware of any way to manually do that.

Yeah, you're pretty much SOL on that. Why don't you restrict their access to the snap-in?
