Solved Windows Easy Transfer Changed Windows 7 start up

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Pent., cpu g630, 4.00 GB, 64 bit
I did a Windows Easy Transfer earlier today and it worked fine but after I shut down the computer that I transferred to, this one, I got a choice upon Startup, for User or Warren. I prefer just the normal start up, without any choice.

I just did a Recovery to a couple of days ago and all is well again but I would like to know which file caused this to happen.

✔ Best Answer
I have not used Easy Transfer, but it sounds like it created a new user from the transfer from the old system. The system restore reversed the changes to the system and registry but should have left any files that were transferred although any in folders like documents from the removed user will probably not be accessible now.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If he does have unaccessible files in the other user's documents
folder, how can he discover them and get at them?
