In my laptop, previously I had to enter both my Username and password to login. But now it asks only for password. I have checked the options and the option “Users must enter both username and password …………………..” is checked. Still I have to enter only password. I want users to enter both. How to go about it? I am using windows 7 professional 32-bit.

I have been logging in to the laptop with more than 3 accounts out of which 1 is not shown in the list during Login now. So I cant login into it now. Also that account is not visible in net user. I wonder why? But its files are there in C:\Users. There are few more accounts that others use and are similar to this. So I need to get back to that screen.
