    User master after upgrade from 1607 to 1703


    after i upgraded my notebook from 1607 to 1703 i asks for the password of the user master after every boot/reboot. i can't find this user in the user database. How can i delete this user account?

    Thanks, Peter

    Press Win + R. Run netplwiz

    Does the mystery "master" user appear there? Try deleting it from there if it is. If not, uncheck the box for "Users must enter a user name and password to use the computer. Click apply. On the next window that pops up click Cancel. The OK on the original netplwiz screen.

    You might also have set a password in BIOS/UEFI which you will have to go into BIOS/UEFI setup to remove.

    now i found out what it was. The autologon was enabled for the user "master". This user does not exist. Now i know why i couldn't find him ;-)I disabled autologon and now everything is working fine. The autologon must have been enabled during the upgrade from 1607 to 1703.
