    I have an extra account showing on my login screen called "Please logon and initialize your device". I don't know how it got there and when I click on it a smaller message under this account name says 'Press ESC for the Welcome Screen. However it actually just returns to the main logon screen. Also it does not show up on the Manage User Accounts screen so I can't remove it that way. Any suggestions on how to get rid of this account (error).

    The problem is solved. It turns out that my laptop has a fingerprint scanner and it needs to be activated when more than one user accounts exist.It allows a user to login in by fingerprint scan. Way cool!
