Windows 7: ./Administrator log in error

29 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
./Administrator log in error

My machine always starts with a default user called "./Administrator" rather than the last logged on user.

This machine is on a domain and hundreds of other machines have exactly the same set-up and no problems, I can't seem to find much about it the problem anywhere?

Any help would be appreciated,

"./Administrator" ?? really with ./ in front?
It logs in automatically or do you mean it asks for his password?

Yeah, with the ./ in front

Been into regedit and edited the DefaultDomainName and DefaultUserName and they are both blank, so I can't see a reason why this would be happening.

It asks for a password but obviously our user keeps having to "Switch Accounts" and type in their own details everytime they'd like to log in, rather than keeping them as last logged on etc.
