XP User Accounts

Greetings All,
I accidentally clicked on User Accounts on my Control Panel. I found an account that is unfamiliar to me. There is my Administrator Account, a Guest and the "new" account that is titled "ASP.NET Machine A..."??? Is this a nomral aspect of XP? Has someone installed an account, unknowingly, upon my machine? Thanks.

I just checked my user accounts(which I've never done before) and found the first two types, Admin and guest. I have no funky
"new" account that seems to be malingering on your machine.

maybe you oughta get that checked.
Are you networking?
FTP?
I am computerly retarded when it comes to such things.

Not sure if this relates to your issue, but i do know that a lot of development tools tend to create "new" accounts onto the machine that they are installed on. If you have recently installed asp.net check the documentation to see if it created this account.

Account used for running the ASP.NET worker process (aspnet_wp.exe)

aspnet_wp.exe deals with hosting internet 'things' i'd run a check for spyware, and viruses just to be sure

if they pick up nothing then i would disable the account (right click the account and hit proporties) you can enable it later if it disables something important.

First, thanks everyone. Second, I don't think I have installed anything recently for or about concerning asp.net. Third, I can't right click on the questionable account. I can do one of six things: change the name, change the password, remove the password, change the picture, change the accoun type and delete the account. There is no disabling of the account. Dilbert, are you running with XP Pro? Just wondering. Thanks again, everyone.

info courtesy google: http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/aspdot.php

it's probably something that got installed when you updated your machine with patches and whatnot...

i went to windows update and sure enough, there's an update called "Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1". it's not a critical patch, but its there under windows updates.

that's probably what happened.

God Bless You, Sir. That was it. I can breathe a sigh of relief now. Thanks for the info.
