    Did you want the "Abc" account to be a guest account instead of a standard local account?

    What is the "Mayo" account. I didn't see it listed in your account details report? Did you rename it from the "Robert" account?

    Do you still have the box checked in netplwiz to require users to sign in at startup?

    I replace Mayo by Robert in cmd text copy because its my real account but in hurry i forgot to rewrite Mayo in user account list
    Now Abc account is displaying in control panel user account list but not in both netplwiz user accounts and login screen. Abc account should be standard account i dont know how it become guest account.

    If you like, you might see if creating a new account to use instead of "Abc" will show on the sign-in screen. If it does, then you could delete the "Abc" account afterwards if you like.

    Now by the above tutorial I can delete the problematic ABC account. Everything is okay now. Thank you very much Brink for your tireless help.
