    Windows 10

    New account has appeared after update

    Hello everyone,
    after I installed the update on my laptop (with windows 10) a new account only visible when I first boot up my laptop has appeared. It is selected by default and it has my name (the same as my original account linked to my hotmail address), and by default the username it has only the part prior to the " @Hotmail.it "(so I have to add the rest when I log in), and also the password is the same. I can't remove it cause I can't find it, when I go into the account manager only my original one shows up. Does anybody have the same issue?

    Thank you guys!

    You could try 2 things from an elevated command prompt ( + X then press A)

    C:\Windows\system32>net user
    User accounts for \\HALI-WIN10
    Hali                     Administrator            DefaultAccount
    The command completed successfully.
    C:\Windows\system32>net user /delete any_extra_user_that_you_don't_want

    and/or enter netplwiz and untick and retick the box next to your account a few times (pressing OK inbetween).

    There are some pictures of netplwiz here Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup - Windows 10 Forums
