    Passwords everywhere?

    I wet back to Windows 7, set up my settings and users, and then upgraded to W-10.

    It worked fine at the initial upgrade, but then, after running all my updates, I now, on my login screen, show the four users I set up, and four named "Password."

    What could have caused this, and what do I need to do to fix it? Do I have to "start over?" Seems strange until I figure out what caused the problem.

    I was...I say "was" because I just restored my "bare" Windows 7 install and am going to try it all again. I wasn't expecting that issue at all, so I cannot say for a fact exactly when it popped up. I'll keep an eye this time!

    I just updated through Windows Update, and got 10074. Also, I have the same issue: On the login screen I show the four accounts I set up (Mine, My MS Account, Administrator, and Guest), and in addition to showing those accounts, I show 4 that are just called "Password."

    This is after going back to a Windows 7 bare install and then updating through Windows Update. I haven't seen this before.

    Argh.

    Why not just delete the 4 password accounts?

    Jerry, they don't show up anywhere else... not in the Users in Control panel or in Users or Groups in Computer management. They only show up on the Log in screen -- but they are tied in somewhere, because they DO work to log in if U click them.

    Try the standard repair tools:
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Even though there are a couple issues Microsoft is working to fix they've released the ISOs for build 10130. See Download Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO for download links.
