    Sir/Mam :
    I wonder if someone at your company can tell me how I can get rid of the Switch User and Icon when returning from Hibernation ?
    Under the Icon is the words : JB
    If I click on the Icon it will go to the Desktop but I would like to remove that step as I have anothe computer that a Tech fixed so it would not come up but I don’t know how he did it in order to do it on my other computer .
    I put in a Search but nothing pertaining to it comes up .
    Can you please help ?
    Thank You,
