I have made VPN connection configuration on local computer. After reboot logon screen lost user accounts. Default Administrator account works fine with Administrator username with empty password, but i still can't logon to my old UserName local account.

But i can login to new accounts with the same names created via user profiles in VPN access settings

I have noticed, that newly created user have UserName.ComputerName in their profile folder names, but old one have only UserName.

Type this ("PCNAME" is your computer's name, the one you typed in setup, and "USER" is the username) into the Username box:

PCNAME\USER

That should get you logging on to a local account. How to make this default, I don't know. I sure miss the XP logon screen where there was a list of what you could log on to.

You would use something like .\username or computername\username or username@computername
