Login asking for Microsoft account instead of local

Hi all, my friend isn't able to sign into his computer anymore after starting it up. It's asking for a Microsoft Live account instead of his local account and there appears to be no buttons to switch user. There's no "create account" option either to get through this.

I don't have access to his computer currently, but I was hoping someone might have encountered this issue and know of a solution. It seems sketchy to me, he's not extremely adept at computers and I'm suspicious he might have some malware. He said this happened suddenly, one day he turned on his computer and it asked for a Live account instead of using his local account. Maybe it was a Windows Update or configuration change he made though, not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.
