    Windows Automatically logs on user upon startup/unable to switch users

    Windows 10 Pro No longer requires a login password on startup and logs right in as the user

    This is occurring on a Windows SBS2011 domain user account

    I scanned PC with trend AV and also Bitdefender - no issues found and PC is generally OK in all other regards and performance is good.

    As I was seeing frequent warnings about the machine not being protected I have temporarily removed Trend Worry Free antivirus as clearly a problem there.

    This machine was re-installed fresh on a new drive just a few weeks ago due to similar problems.

    No other machines on the domain have this issue though one has started showing the trend error.

    My feeling is that windows updates have screwed something as it was perfect for a couple of weeks following the reinstall.

    Following my nose yesterday I went to settings /accounts and noted that the user had an account type of 'Terminal Services' which I have never seen before.

    I set user to local admin and order was restored with the user now required to enter a password and now able to switch users and log out as normal.

    Marked as Solved!
