    That's normal if you leave the box checked.


    When you check the box, you will need to select your correct top user account that has both HomeUsers; Administrators under the Group column.

    Afterwards, you would uncheck the box, and click on OK. You will then be asked to enter your password.

    It seems that didn't do the trick I check the box and select the top one and get prompted for a password which I then enter and then i uncheck the box but the after a reboot it's back to the middle one that only says Administrators and my email as user name

    Something's not right. You shouldn't be asked to enter the password of the select user account until after you uncheck the box, select the user, and click on OK.

    If you like, see if doing OPTION TWO will have it work properly for you.

    Oh yes I am sorry That's how it is, it's when i press apply/ok i get prompted for password. I already tried option 2 and it didn't work either but i'd like to avoid that option as it's not so safe

    Delete the "DefaultPassword" string value in the registry from OPTION TWO, and make sure the rest in the registry is correct for what you set in OPTION ONE, and test again.

    If it still doesn't work for you, then you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started may help.

    You don't have a restore point available dated before this happened?
