This question already has an answer here:
The list of users one can click to log in from the login screen has disappeared. This is what I have done so far:
My C:\Users folder was in reality a NTFS Junction that pointed to D:\Users, so when D:\ was unavailable due to a temporary hardware problem, I got into some problems with my setup.
- removing the junction pointing to the other volume
- copying all the profiles back into C:\Users
- mucking around in the Registry in the HKLM.../Windows NT/CurrentVersion/ProfileList and reverting any profiles that had gotten a .bak postfix
- setting the "Flags", "RefCount" and "State" values to 0 in the same key (I only did this on my own user accounts - not all)
logging in finally worked as before.
With one difference.
The login screen no longer showed the list of available users! Previously I could just select an icon, but now there is only an icon for the last logged in user, as well as "Other user". I have tried many tips so far, most of which involve fiddling with config settings available through
gpedit.msc. Any tips on how I could restore the easy login that is the standard?
I wonder if I could delete any of the other register keys in ProfileList. Any clues?
