    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64

    Only last logged-in user displayed

    Here's something really silly. Thing is, I have 2 accounts on my home desktop one for me (admin) and the other for my wife (standard user/non admin account).

    Strange thing is that after a few days my wife's account (or any other account even if I create a new one) doesn't appear on the logon screen. There's neither a 'back' arrow, nor does her ID show in switch user. The screen only shows my user ID.

    I checked the profile in the C:\Users directory, in Control Panel --> Users. All seems to be perfectly ok except she cannot login coz the screen doesn't display her ID.

    Now Win8 Pro has been really getting me annoyed. This is the 2nd time Win8 has done this while Win7 ran without a single issue for years.

    The 1st time Win8 went wonky I got around it by restoring my C drive from a backup image. But this time around all my backup images probably have the same messed up Windows backed up so restoring one of them won't solve the problem.

    Can someone help?

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64 I found the solution @ Sevenforums. This is the link:

    Logon Screen - Fix Showing Only "Other User" and Last Logged On User - Windows 7 Forums

    I deleted 2 superfluous sub-keys in the registry per the instructions and all is well.
