Displaying User Accounts

Hello

Normally when I start my computer I see two user account icons on the screen side by side, "Ian" and "Dawn".

Today, for no reason at all it it has decided to display this differently. I have a user account icon for the last user to login, either "Ian" or "Dawn" and another icon stating "Other User".

I want it to display like it used to with the "Ian" and "Dawn" user ccount icons side by side.

Please can you help?

Thank you.
Ian.

Suggestions :

1. Go to Safe Mode with Networking, and run a full virus scan with the security program you have installed.
If you want extra help, install malwarebytes and run it. It is one of the best in the business.
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer
Pick the " free " version download > after install, click Update > then select Perform Full Scan.

2. Also while in safe mode, do a system restore. Pick the date ( say 2 days ago )when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
