I'm using Windows 10 (1803) and since I'm the only user of my PC I've enabled autologon using netplwiz:

enter image description here

It worked fine for a long time but after some newer updates (still no 1809!) there is a second user profile with my name and a message that the password I've entered is wrong on logon screen:

…so the autologon doesn't succeed and I have to choose my account manually and enter my PIN.

Is there a way to remove this second user from the logon screen?

    Does disabling and re-enabling autologon using netplwiz change anything? (I can't read the images fyi, maybe it won't matter) – Xen2050 Oct 28 '18 at 12:22
  • @Xen2050 for some reason it seems actually to do the job! Thank you! – GeMir Oct 28 '18 at 12:34
  • That's good news, I might as well make it an official answer (Welcome!) – Xen2050 Oct 28 '18 at 12:35
  • I had this problem on a VM of mine. I simply set the default user account again and doing so solved the problem. – Ramhound Oct 29 '18 at 18:49

Try disabling and re-enabling autologon using netplwiz.

Something must have changed during an update, but netplwiz might be able to re-set things back to working.
