Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello Golfer2,
this cannot be done in any case so you’d better abandon this way of getting your dues done.
As the peer suggests “this sound like hacker wannabe activity” and I agre with him.
Bye

    hmmmm..... sounds like a hacker question to me. Why would you want to do this?

    Generally it's not needed to hide an account from the other administrators (read that as never needed). While it is possible I'm afraid that anyone here will want to know why you are trying to do it before providing the information.

    I have a similar request. I want to hide disabled users from the Advanced search option when adding security permissions. I have several disabled user accounts that I don't want to delete, but don't particularly want to see every time I change permissions on something. Also I don't want to hide them in the "Active Directory Users and Computers" tool or from the administrator. In here I have already moved them into another container.
