    I recently decided to password protect my computer so that upon startu
    I have to type in a password. But now when I start up the computer I ge
    a "the user name or password is incorrect" error message (at this poin
    I haven't done anything except push the power button to turn th
    computer on). So, I press the "OK" button, and a user named Amy (with
    different picture then mine) appears and a password is requested.
    don't know the password for this account, and don't ever remembe
    setting it up, so I click "switch user". Then it shows me two accounts
    both named Amy with different pictures. The second Amy listed is the on
    I recognize with my picture, so I have been logging in that one with th
    password I set. But it seems silly to have to go through that many step
    to log on. So after I logged in, I looked on user accounts so that
    could delete the duplicate account, but the other Amy account is no
    there. Only mine and the option to turn on a guest. I would like t
    remove that duplicate so that the startup goes straight to MY Amy
    Anyone have any ideas
