    Latest update causes dual log in


    I got an automatic update yesterday (Sunday). When I restarted it came up with two Avatars of my login. When I tried to log on, one of the two had no log in info and the other had my password blank. I had it setup to automatically log in but that is also gone. I didn't try to resolve the log in issue yesterday. I'll attack it later today.

    I don't know what the update was, as I didn't get logged back on.

    The only time I get the two avatars on login is when I have it set up for automatic. On manual(enter password) it's just one.

    Odd..Issue?? Not sure right now.

    What was the KB number of the update??

    The only one I received yesterday was this:
    Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602 (Definition 1.189.1085.0)

    I'm not sure what the update was, but it was more than a defender update as during restart on both closing down and starting up I got messages about installing updates. Its still setup for automatic updates. I'm going to change that to manual.

    There were two updates to Win 10 that I got, along with the Defender update and some C++ updates. Who knows which one caused the problem. I did a "refresh" and it seems to be OK now. If not, I'll just do a complete reinstall. One of the things with Beta versions, there will be problems.

    The December Update was KB3020114 -- and according to the details, was specifically to address the explorer problem.

    My log in also shows 2 avatars now. Has been for the last couple of weeks. I didn't notice which update resulted in the change. I am assuming that one log in is me and the other for Administrator (me). I had to reset them both to auto for log in to happen automatically.

    I only have to set the one for auto log in. In fact the other doesn't show in the screen when I set the auto log in.

    I haven't found where the second one is located, so I can remove it. But, as it is now, its not interfering.

    I always suspected it had something to do MS signing in along with you as they are monitoring this build, but I could be dreaming.
