    Re: Windows 8 shows different userName

    It is a rare case problem which doesn't occurs normally. Make sure that you don't have any such user account in your computer. To check it Press "Windows key+Q" and enter "User Accounts" in the search box and hit enter. Now click on "settings".You will see some results now. Click on "user Accounts" option. Check whether any such account exists or not? If there is no existence of such account then It would be better for you to run Windows Defender App.To do the same, open the charms bar by clicking on "Windows key +Q" and type "Windows Defender" in the search box which appears at upper right corner. Now click on "Windows Defender" option. Select full from the scan option and finally let it scan. If you have another antivirus softwares like Quickheal Total security or Kaspersky antivirus then do a full scan of your computer.

    Dear Friend,

    First make sure you don't have more account in the computer.

    in windows 8 for checking user account click on the windows + Q.

    Search the user account if you want to search...then click on the setting''''

    Click on "user Accounts" option. Check whether any such account exists or not?

    If there is no existence of such account then It would be better for you to run Windows Defender App.

    To do the same, open the charms bar by clicking on "Windows key +Q" and type "Windows Defender" in the search box

    which appears at upper right corner. Now click on "Windows Defender" option.

    if you have antivirus software first complete the full scan of your computer...



    Thank You!!!!!
