    Question unknown user account

    i hope i'm not being paranoid without a reason...i see that in control panel-user settings... there is a limited, password protected user account by the name 'ASP.NET Machine A...' ...it doesn show on the logon screen and i wanted somebody else's opinion before i deleted it....

    That's a by-product of installing .NET. You can delete it, but I use Powertoys Tweak UI to hide it. In fact I think it hides it by default.

    I also noticed that account but I still do not know what its purpose is. If you install the recent .NETFramework update, that account disappears.
