    I have two profiles on boot up


    I have ignored this, but it's starting to bug me. I have a default MS profile that I log into, but on startup, there is two profiles. "See images." It wants to log into an account that is nonexistent on my system. I ran netplwiz on my MS profile so I can just boot to the desktop. This other profile doesn't appear there and it doesn't show in Manage Accounts But Windows always want to log into this other account on startup. I want to disable or delete this Ghost account so I can boot right to my desktop. Point me in the right direction, please.

    Lance,

    When others have reported these symptoms it has turned out to be caused by a faulty use of netplwiz and they fix the problem by undoing then redoing their netplwiz steps.

    Sometimes it's the simple fix that does the trick. I can't believe I didn't think of that...Thanks Denis!
