Windows 7 home won't show all login users at start up

I have a brand-new windows seven home laptop I set up with two users both set as administrators. When the computer turns on at the login screen it only shows one users name and "other user". So to login as the second user you have to select other user and know/enter username and password.  Anyway to have all users listed at the login screen?  This computer is not part of a domain.

Is one of the users "administrator" (like days of old). This is supposed to be disabled and not used. That may be one possible reason.  ... Thinkpads_User

Nope both of them are separate users with administrator rights.

What happens when you log off (not shut down). Do you see both names?  I have my machine set not to display names, but I have seen other Windows 7 machines with names displayed. Let us know what happens when you log off. ... Thinkpads_User

When you log off it only shows the user you just logged off as and another one that says user.so if I login as the other user then log off itll say that users name and a blank user that requires a username and password. I've seen a lot of posts on the web for this issue.

I believe the default profile has been copied/replaced or played with erroneously before the "other user" was created and therefore the conflict.
