  1. Best answer
    Download Tweak UI, install it, run it, and from Logon > Autologon > check the box > Set Password > Apply > OK

  2. Does the logo have "Administrator" next to it, or is it a windows account you named? If you named it, then just eradicate your password, and it should go away (unless there is another windows user account [and it's showing you more than one icon {windows accounts})

    I sounds like you either: (1) created another windows account, or (2) created a password for yourself
    (there are cases when windows decides to show the "Administrator" account, though).
