  1. Can't select user name in netplwiz to set up signin


    I would like to get rid of the need to alt-ctrl-del at startup. When I bring up netplwiz to update the user account, my user name is present but cannot be selected. Only the admin can be selected. I am the sole user, am signed in as the active user yet cannot make any changes to my own user name.

    :)
