    Login successful. Login unsuccessful...?

    Hi, I have this 'problem' every time I login on my computer. After writing my password and clicking the button welcome-screen flashes and then there comes a message saying something like:
    Logon successful.
    Last you logged on this account interactively was dd.mm.yyyy.

    Logon unsuccessful.
    There haven't been unsuccessful logon attempts on this account after the last interactive login.
    Only option the message give is to click on OK-button. And there is also this Windows defender saying that it's disabled due to Group policies. I'm not sure does it have anything to do with this login-problem of mine. Googling didn't give any answer for this.

    Hello L8TE, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It looks like you have the Display information about previous logons during user logon policy enabled. Disabling it using the tutorial below should stop that in Windows 10 as well.

    Sign-in Information - Display about Previous Sign-ins

    If you have a 3rd party AV program installed, they will often disable Windows Defender. If you don't, then check to see if you may be able to turn Windows Defender on using the tutorial below.
