on 'Switch User" cntrl/alt/del I see "another user" I am not aware off

Hello

Interestingly on boot up I see "another user" but the picture is blank, with a frame around it (I can see through it to the boot wallpaper that I have changed to prove) ..

Who is another user?

Please help as I have been on the 2 days now

Sorry to bump but things have changed somewhat, and yes could start a new topic but will try the edit function as I am not here often. I see 110 views and that's promising

Please advise who is this "another user" icon/picture is blank, with a frame around it (I can see through it to the boot wallpaper that I have changed to prove) .. on control /alt/ delete.

I now have admin rights back (previous problem) but this "another user" can't be found anywhere (I know of) except at login. I am stumped..

Thanks so much Brink

It worked a treat as I made sure I set a restore point (in case) and followed those instructions verbatim.

I did also read elsewhere about netplwiz in the command line about users not having to log in and that seemed to help finally so I suspect that had something to do with it.

This link explains briefly and thanks again because it no longer gets me upset....

If you like, the tutorial can give more information about logging in automatically.
