    Another account showed on Startup and error message

    From a few minutes, I have a new problem with Win10 post Anniversary Update.
    I have just one account on my PC. I checked netplwiz and other stuff to be sure, but there is only one, mine, as administrator, and nothing more.

    Now for some reason, Win 10 on startup login screen shows 2 account, and it says an error message about wrong name and password, and I have to manually insert password...and it works.
    Both accounts have same name and same login user and password. But one is with generic pic, and the other one is with actual pic of my image. Both accounts works in the same way with same programs and other.
    Why happened this? How can I remove this generic account if isn't in my account control panel?
    Can be related to this?

    EDIT: I resolved both problems simply logging a local account, then I re-log with my official account.
