Re: Same screen name and password, two seperate accounts. Please help
1) It sounds as if you are having trouble with the X Window System crashing. Can you please provide specs for your computer. I think what is happening is that you log in, when X starts correctly, you get your typical custom desktop. If X fails, you will get default icons, backgrounds, etc. I assure you, you do not have two accounts with the same name and password.
