http://www.mvps.org/...wsXP/aspdot.php gives a description of what this user account is. It is created when installing the .net framework.

Nope, no super hackers for that one, at least not this time. :whistling: If I remember correctly, if you don't do any programming I think you can delete that account. I am not 100% sure though so don't quote me on it.
