    query about user accts/bypassing login


    recently tweaked it so that i could bypass login without entering password. mistakenly added "malcolm" and not full name to login screen bypassing...now everytime pc comes on, the first option "malcolm" name appears and it wont login automatically...so i would have to click the second option "malcolm smith" to login...how do i remove the first option entirely

    Hello Malcom, :)

    If you used netplwiz, then you would just need to set it up again using the correct account name instead.

    Ok, good.

    If you like, you should now be able to setup netplwiz to automatically sign in to your account at startup.
