I recently had to restore my Mac's HD. Now when I start up in the morning I get a screen that has my name and "guest user" and I have to select myself for the computer to continue login. I remember that was there when I first set up my computer but don't remember how to bypass that login screen. Can someone help?

Thank you,

After login, go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups (used to be called Accounts)

Click the lock icon and authenticate. Then click on the Login Options below the users list.
