CEntOS 7 keep asking to create user


Hi,
I have CEntOS7 as one of my vm. Lately I noticed everytime I finish boot the machine it always request to create/add new user. I have Gnome/Gnome Classic desktop environment only.
Any clue where I can start to investigate?

Thank you in advance.

Guys,
I just cleared all the logs in /var/log. Just simply removed with "rm -Rf" as root, and I restarted, and I get the machine back to normal. I can login to any available user after boot.
I really don't know why this happened. Anyway thanks a lot guys.

Remove package named similar to "firstboot", do not remember the exact name.
