    How to remove this defaultuser0 from logon screen


    Hello,
    On the first start of a brand new MS Surface Pro3, goes through the Windows Welcome configuration then restart.
    On the logon screen I got 2 users : mine and defaultuser0 (see image enclosed).

    Is there a way to remove this defaultuser0 (at least from the logon screen) without damaging Windows 10?
    Regards

  2. Get rid of Windows 10 defaultuser0

    Hi,

    I realize that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should. Sorry to know that you are facing this issue. I will try to help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to follow these steps to remove the user account from your computer and check if that helps.


    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “netplwiz” press Enter.

    • Select the user account (defaultuser0), click the remove button.

    Follow the on-screen directions to complete the process. Once this is done restart the pc for the changes to take place.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Defaultuser0 tries to logon on boot

    Dear all,

    I initially had activation problem which I sent a post here asking for help.

    After following a link offered by Microsoft to apply the "oobe/msoobe /a"
    which I foolishly did I was forced in to initial Windows 10 setup procedure. I aborted this since it was already a week after I had upgraded successfully with all my apps etc.

    Upon reboot I was only logged in to the so-called Defaultuser0 account to setup my Microsoft account which I did and rebooted the laptop. since then upon startup/reboot (NOT sign off) I get the Defaultuser0 appearing to logon with but I
    can switch user and then use my usual Outlook account and login successfully and all is fine.

    I have searched everywhere and I can't find out how to get rid of this Defaultuser0 account which places itself on top of existing account and is always the first account to login with. By the way I have no idea what the password for this account is and
    under the computer management/Local Users and Groups/Users there is no such account anyway.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Bina

    How to remove this defaultuser0 from logon screen

    Is it safe to remove the defaultuser0 account in the Audit Mode?

    I am working with Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB.

    I have to prepare customized Windows with the unattended installation.

    Everything works fine, but after I deploy the system I can see there is defaultuser0 account. I heard it is okay and it should disappear after a few logons. But it does not.

    Is it safe to remove the defaultuser0 account in the Audit Mode?
