"Users must enter a user name and password..."

I have four computers running Windows 8.1

On three the User Accounts dialog box has the phrase, "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
I have deselected that box and entered the passwords and now I log in automatically.

But on one computer in the User Accounts dialog box there is no phrase, "Users must enter..." and there is not box to deselect.


What to do?

thanks

John

Thanks for the quick response.

The computer is on a very small "peer to peer" network that I manage using Windows 8.1.


My networking knowledge is Very Limited but I think that means it is not on a domain.
