Other User on startup screen?

Q. My computer always has a Phantom “other user” on the startup screen; I looked into the accounts and mine is the only account there, no one else. and I’ve never used another account on this computer. I don’t understand how to get rid of this.

I always have to hit enter, get denied, hit the back button to see my actual account, and then enter my password for the correct account.

  1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete key.
