1. If user profiles are setup, if not disregard this step: In the Users Control Panel (Start;Settings; Control Panel; Users) delete all users.
2. In the Passwords control panel click the User Profiles tab and verify that the 'All users of this PC use the same preferences and desktop settings' option is selected, and then click OK.
3. Click on Start; Find (or Search); Files or Folders.
4. In 'Search for files or folders named' (or Named) box: type in '*.pwl', without the quotation marks.
5. In the 'Look In' box use the drop-down arrow to ensure [C:] is selected.
6. Place a check mark by Include subfolders.
7. Click on "Find (or Search) Now'.
8. Right-click delete all the PWL files found.
9. Close the Find/Search utility and restart the computer via the Start button.
10. When you see the Windows Logon Prompt again, type in a name (preferably Ima Nonymous) but do not type in a password and click on 'OK'
11. Go to control panel; Double-click the Network icon and select windows logon' Click Ok and restart your computer.

If after doing the above and restarting your computer twice (x2) you still see the Logon Prompt, a quick setting change in the Network Control Panel (within Control Panel) to the Primary Network Login 'Windows Logon' will correct the problem.

Tell me how it went, this is resolvable. If the Primary Network Login 'Windows Logon' is all that is available adding a Client like Microsoft Family Logon and changing the Primary Network Logon to that client and a restart should resolve the issue.
