Windows Updates cause Anti-theft false alarm

Recommended Posts

I notice that over the past few months, every time there is a Windows10 update and the computer re-boots, ESET sends me an alert that the phantom account has been accessed.  Is this normal? What would a Windows update be doing that makes it look like a phantom account login?

My best guess is the following is the cause of this:


Automatic login for Phantom account is enabled

Autologin is enabled for the Phantom account on your device. When the device is in the normal state, we do not recommend that you use autologin because it may cause problems with access to your real user account or send false alarms about the missing state of your computer.

To disable Autologin click Disable Automatic Login or refer to Microsoft knowledgebase articles mentioned in the topic above.
