Hi, this may seem like an odd question, but can someone put a hidden account
on xp? I have recently loaded XP Professional on a new computer (home pc)
and I have just lately noticed an account that only appears when I click on
control panel and user accounts. I'm actually wondering if my babysitter is
playing around with my computer (she is a comp. science major in college).
Just curious, because I know she wouldn't do anything malicious....

If you have dotNET framework 1.1 installed, it creates an account called
asp.net. It is harmless.

What is the name of that account?
It could be windows xp pro default administrator account.
