    I delete my administrator User in Capitan and create new one. Everything fine

    But when I restart macbook, starts with my "delete user". I enter the password, the OS X starts charging, but stops, and appears the new user and option to enter password

    How can I delete completely the user? I delete in System Preferences the user, but I don´t know why when I start the OS give me the option to starts with this delete user

    In system preferences/Users, I select the user, and with the simbol - delete
    There's some advise, I accept and delete

    I read forums and explain that's the common way

    The method you used is correct, should work and shouldn't lead to what you're experiencing.

    Try this...set up "Automatic login" for your new user account. Restart to see if the Automatic login works. If that is successful, turn off Automatic login and see what happens.

    How can I set up Automatic login?
    The option appears impossible to change

    You have to "Click the lock to make changes".

    I click in the lock

    I think I found the reason
    I read in a forum I need deactivated Filevault, I do and now works. Restart and
    only my user appears

    Is neccesary activate this option? I don´t know for what´s that option

    That's good to know!

    Filevault probably isn't necessary for you if you're not sure. You can read up on it to make your own decision.

    The reason is that when you enabled FireVault you did so with the, now, deleted user.

    It required that deleted users password to unlock the HDD before allowing you to logon with your newly created user.

    There would have been an option to configure another user to unlock FireVault instead of disabling it. It's safe to enable again and would recommend doing it, it's drive encryption by the way.
