How to hide the built-in Administrator account at normal logon

I am now using Windows 7 Pro at work, and I am trying to recreate the system we had previously on Windows XP Pro.  Namely, I had it set up so that each computer had a standard user account and an admin account.  I used the built-in Administrator account which is invisible on the normal logon screen - you have to start Windows in safe mode to access it.

I have been into advanced user accounts and enabled the Administrator account, but it shows up on the standard logon screen - is there any way on 7 to hide this account like it was on XP?

I'd be very grateful for help with this - thanks in advance for your time.
