    "Get Started" can't be opened using the Builtin Admin .. but I'm not

    Second time recently I've seen this on different laptops updated to Anniversary:
    I have one user account setup; the "built-in Administrator" account is inactive [in fact never been otherwise].
    in the one user account I restarted using advanced options in order to get Safe Mode going.
    When the system boots, I get the real User account, input the password, and login. Then a box pops up on the screen as follows:
    "This app can't open
    Get Started can't be opened using the Built-in Administrator account. Sin in with a different account..."

    But I'm not using builtin Administrator.

    at any rate, is this just a bug I should ignore? any quick way to fix?
