I'm having an issue with a new computer setup.
I have two users set up but it is showing as duplicates. One set with a circle background one set with a square background.

Clicking on one of the square profiles will bring me to a strange looking login page with a keyboard icon on the bottom left:

Both logins accept the same password and lead to the same account - there are only 2 accounts on the machine.

How can I get rid of these duplicate logins?

I have tried checking/unchecking the “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” box in netplwiz.
