    Unknown account on my computer


    Hello, I have a laptop with Windows 10 Home Edition. Because I use my laptop at home only, I donít need a password on startup. One week ego something has change I donít know why and on startup. Now on start up I see a screen with window for password and in bottom left corner two accounts to choose from. I never created any additional account on my computer. When I checked the List of User Accounts it show only my original account. On User Accounts - user must enterÖ. box is unchecked. Wonder if someone can help me with this problem.

    Are you able to select your account and if you do does it login without requiring a password?

    Ztruker: to log in, I have to enter a password.
    Gurn Blaston: Both accounts have the same name and only one I can use with a password I know.
    Samuria: Two accounts have the same name in this case my first and last name.
