Windows 7: Login/Lock screen doesn't go right to my account anymore

Login/Lock screen doesn't go right to my account anymore

When I turned on my computer yesterday, after Ctrl + Alt + Del, my account plus a forgot password "account" came up instead of just asking for my password. It now does this every time, even when I just lock the screen. How do I get it to go back to going straight to asking for my account p/w?

it only does that if you have multiple accounts, try deleting the new one and see.

There is no other account besides mine and an admin one which is hidden. This is the first thing I checked.
