Hi, either when I installed a new game or when I did some
Windows Updates. The next time I started my computer I
had to click on the Welcome screen on Administrator - me,
that's good - but I'm supposed to be the only user. I
always go straight to my desktop. So I checked the User
Accounts I found a new user: ASP.NET Machine A... Limited
Account Password Protected (exactly like that, with the
A...). I think a game may have said that if I don't have
Framework it would install it. Does it have anything to
do with it? Where the heck did this new user come from?
This happened once before - I deleted the user. Looked
like hacker stuff, but what do I know? Any clues?
Thanks for your time, Vicki

Have a look here:
