Remove "no name" user from login screen

After install a program called DigitalPersona which is used to login to Windows by fingerprint ID
it has created an extra user on the logon screen.

This user has no name and is not listed in the Local Users and Groups > Users

I have since uninstall the software, but the user still remains on my logon screen.

How to remove it?

IF anyone wants to test this software, to replicate the problem...

Thanks for the link...

But the user is not listed in any of those options mentions in that thread.

It is just a clickable icon on the Logon screen.

IT has no name.

If u install that software I linked (e.g. in a VM) you will see what I mean.

I said install it on a Virtual Machine.
You can easily revert back to a previous saved state.

I just mean this user has no name and is not listed in the Users.
The only thing that shows it's existence is the icon in the logon screen.

Hi Madmax2,

I’m interested in solving your issue. Thank you for providing a link to the problem software, however I’m unable locate this “Digital Persona Fingerprint Reader Software” software. Would you be able to provide a more direct link to the software?

That was not helpful. The only button on the page that includes the word “software” is a tab labeled “Software and Drivers” at the top of the page.

A more direct link would be preferable.

I have tried to post the direct link here, but every time I tried to, I get "Error 500" message.
