How do I get rid of a failed automatic log in attempt when I boot Windows 7?

When I boot my computer in Windows 7 a screen comes up with “user name or password not found.” When I click on change user I see Admin and another account which I had to create in order to log on at all.

I have fixed the Admin so that I can now choose that as well but the same first screen appears which prohibits Windows from starting automatically after a Windows update in the middle of the night. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of that first log in screen.
