My 3000 N100 (0768 - A49 running Vista Business) did a curious thing after a Windows update. It created 2 sets of user icons. In other words, it created an identical duplicate set of the original 2 user profiles/icons that I created (one for admin, the other for daily use), so that when I log on, the screen displays 4 user icons instead of just the original 2. As far as I can tell, it doesn't matter which set I use to log on with, because the computer environment where I end up seems to be right and I see no difference.
This doesn't seem to have any bad functional effects (though I don't really know for sure). It's just really curious and very annoying.
Also, I'm pretty sure this happened after a Windows update and not a lenovo update. It was a very big batch of updates from Microsoft, so I haven't isolated which particular one might have caused it.
Any help is much appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the info. You are quite right. Funny though: Before reading your info, I had just uninstalled OmniPass on my own, just because I don't use it and it's always bugged me with its interference with the log-in process (having to wait for it to load on the sign-on screen or else it stalls the input/typing of your password into Windows). Anyway, much to my surprise, it solved the doubled icons problem. I just came back to the forum to post this "new" info that I accidentally "discovered" (ha ha), and found your post and link. Wow, seems link tons of others have had the same problem, and also have found ways to solve this without disposing OmniPass.
Very cool and Thanks!
