Windows 10 domain pc restarts to "Other User"

I have a Windows 10 PC that is connected to a domain in a small office. For the last month one of the PC's restarts with the login screen being "other user". I can still put in the domain users credentials in & log in just fine, but the user would like it to default the his user account. I'm not finding much on Google; we don't want to reset the pc, or wipe the system. Any ideas?....Thanks!

Easy fix for this is to remove and re-add to the domain. Should fix it and doesn't cause any lasting issues.

If I do that will the user profile need to be created(we have several network programs/email/etc that I would like to avoid setting up again) Thanks for the reply!

When  you rejoin the domain you will find the desktop along with all the applications intact.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

On the concerned machine check the value for the following registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI
LastLoggedOnDisplayName
LastLoggedOnSamUser
LastLoggedOnUser

Does it show you the domain username ?

What is the value set for the following ?
IsFirstLogonAfterSignOut

It will show you 'Other User' if the value is set to 0

Hi,

What is the value set for the following ?
IsFirstLogonAfterSignOut

This value was set to 0; I changed it to 1 & restarted but still no change:

LastLoggedOnDisplayName      Tom
LastLoggedOnSamUser              Domain\Tom
LastLoggedOnUser                       Domain\Tom

Any ideas? Thanks
