    Whenever I login to Windows 11 it prompts me for a password for a USER that has been deleted.
    I have to press the blue screen to get the current user to appear and then type in the PIN
    Is there some way I can NOT get the deleted account to appear and just the current user? The deleted account was removed in the Control Panel, Users.
    Is this a Parallels issue or a Windows 11 issue?

    Thank you for your feedback.
    To resolve the issue, please follow the steps below:
    1. Open Parallels Desktop and Launch your Windows Virtual Machine then login through the current user.
    2. Click on the Windows Start Icon > Type Regedit and press enter.
    3. Navigate to the following Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    4. Make sure you selected the Winlogon folder and on the right panel, please search for DefaultUserName and delete it (Right-click select delete)
    5. Restart your Virtual Machine and it should no more auto-login to the deleted profile anymore.
    Thank you!
