    Ok I checked the box labeled, "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" and now when I reboot, it stops at the lock-screen. Simply pressing Esc while take me to the login screen where the 4 accounts are displayed.
    This is great news!
    The only thing I have to do now is figure out why in the world I keep getting a error message every time I attempt to change/add a account picture to.
    Thanks for all the tips guys. Your expertise is appreciated.

    You're so very welcome.

    That's good news! Do you think someone knows enough about systems to untick that?

    Nah, you just pull the mobo battery for about 10 seconds and plug it back in. Or, use the BIOS jumper to clear the current BIOS. Very easy to work around that one.
    Thanks, Patrick, but we know the work around.

    BTW, one is not clearing the BIOS by pulling the CMOS battery or jumping. It reverts BIOS it to default by clearing the customized settings CMOS is holding in which the password is part of settings. Its still a B in time and effort to correct, especially on a laptop.

    In our household, the kids have always each had their own PC and it was in a shared space (family room) with all of the other computers. Now that they are young adults, they have their laptops, smartphones and computers in the den/music room. The kids were responsible for their own computers and I taught them how to protect themselves and their computers and it worked out well. I NEVER had to clean their computers....

    This worked great by the way. Everything is working as intended now including the option which allows the user to change the pictured associated with each account.
    Thanks for everything guys. :-)
