    I did not setup the install with a MS account local only. Even though I do have an MS account this OS does not know that.

    I don`t need a write up, I did it myself :)

    Of course you only have 1 account, your local or your Microsoft, but they are one in the same.

    If I do control userpasswords2 to auto login, I too get 2 icons.

    So I just type in the password to my local account every time, which I hate doing.

    When you set up windows TP you have to create a Microsoft account, same for Windows 8 (another thing I hate)

    After you`re done your install, you can either keep signing in to a Microsoft account or switch to a local account. (recommend)

    That is a workaround and not a solution. I am not convinced MS designed it that way (which makes it a bug for me). It looks cheap. My Win 8.1 should show the same thing after downloading the latest updates if MS is doing things that way now upon login.

    I would rather see those 2 profile pics than manually type my password. :) It doesn't affect performance anyway.

    I totally agree, Microsoft only started doing this with 8 and 10

    That`s why Windows 7 is and will Always be The Best operating system of all Time

    I Don't get the 2 avatars with win8.1 just 10. I set them up both the same on install. You can actually install win 8.1 &10 without setting up an MS account. But I agree seeing 2 avatars requires nothing from me but entering a password no matter how simple is annoying. I suppose MS will fix this but I don't care much whether they do or not. I wouldn't purchase it unless they offer a "Dirt cheap" price for those of us who tested the thing.

    Anyone seeing two log in avatars must have something else in common because I did not have that issue I booted many times in a out of win-10 without the issue :/

    Are you using "control userpasswords2" or "netplwiz" to suppress the the need to enter a password?
