Hello

The problem/question i have is when logging into my account (Admin) on this computer i have to do it twice it logs in at the first attempt and then goes back to the list of accounts that can be logged into (there are 5 accounts) and i have to log into my account again. the other accounts seem to log in fine on the first attempt. it's not really a problem it's just annoying.
Thanks for any input.

Other than suggesting to scan for malware, I found one other person with the problem you have
Theirs was caused by changing graphics cards:

It was down to the recent change of graphics card and not removing all previously installed software.

Stopped ATI hotkey from start up and now logs in normally

thanks for the input
i havent changed graphic cards or anything else i can run a scan if you'd like but i'm almost certain i'm not infected as i try to stay on top of the security in this PC but you never know? i run comodo for the firewall AVG for antivirus and malwarebytes along with spybot and spywareblaster . so if you would like to see a log let me know and we can go from there.
thanks again

It is possible that your admin account has become corrupted
You could create a new admin account and if that one loads OK, delete the old one

it is possible.
but what about all my antivirus/malware programs? won't they be deleted as well? just curious because i as the admin on this PC am the only one allowed to download/update most anything on this account. and i will have to re download everything?
if that is what you think i will certainly give it a try. just wondering whats not gonna be there on the next account?
Please advise and thank you again.

You're going to create the new account before deleting the old one. You'll be OK
Just make sure to add "new" to the account so you don't get them mixed up
You can rename it later if you'd like
