To be fair, I was saying delete the pre-created user AND disable the autologin.

I suppose that is another possible solution - delete the autologin user.  However, I have a bad feeling about that solution ;-)


Here’s part of the reason why:


Before you delete that user, make sure that your new admin user (which is to say, a user in the adm group) has all sudo (probably still with password) permissions….  You don’t want to end up with a machine that you have to boot on a live DVD in order to become root!

I would suggest that you create a new Admin user, Log in as that user and verify it works. Delete the Company create user.


Disabling the automatic login has several paths to execution.
