    I opened a new User Account for work called "employee" and when I was done, I removed it from the user list. I made the account "admin" but for some reason OSX made it the main admin somehow. After I removed it, it is not on the list in settings, but when I turn on my computer, it still boots as Employee and I have to enter the old password. Then it takes almost 10 minutes to load, then goes to another screen where I can enter the password of the original account. Here is where it gets even more annoying.

    The curser disappears and the trackpad wont work!! I have to hit tab a thousand times and enter until I can FINALLY enter the password and log in! I am scared to even restart my computer because of this crap. I have a 2016 Macbook Pro so I think that is pretty messed up how I spent over $1200 on a laptop and am afraid to restart it and spent 10+ minutes booting up.

    Help would be...MUCH...MUCH appreciated. Yes I am a little frustrated, and I have been meaning to post this for months. Thank you..

    Boot into safe mode and see how the computer reacts:

    Wow, I am so surprised that this is the only response I received. I totally thought this would be a big thread. This is a huge freakin problem and it is pissing me off on a molecular level.
    Taz, I will try that out, but then what? I assume it will be the same thing. I have not tried it yet because I have several tasks going on right now, but I will let you know.

    Disable FileVault, then re-enable it. Sounds like "Employee" is the only authorized login to dectrypt the disk, which is why you need to log into that user first.

    Awesome. That seemed to work. I really appreciate it.

    Many, if not most, computer problems are with the User.

    Oh, maybe I misunderstood. ;)
