Hi again,
When checking my PC with Microsoft Baseline Security Analyser I am told that there are three administators defined where I am one. See below.
1. Administratör
2. Claes Björnesjö
3. S-1-5-21-496393314-1148942700-689279713-1003

The only one that I can see when using the Control Panel/User account is myself (2)

How can I recognise the other two to understand why they are there.

I have an idea about number three that it is coming from Compaq when they installed everything on the PC.

The first one is a mystery for me.

Why can´t I handle them through the Control Panel/User account?

How are they defined without using the Control Panel/User account facility?

Thanks for yur help.

Most likely, the Administrator (#1 in your list) is the Windows default Administrator user ID. That account is not accessible through Control Panel, User Accounts.

The third one in your list kind of looks like a user account that might have been deleted or in some other way disabled or corrupted, but I could be wrong. Compare your user accounts to the profiles stored on your computer. You can get to them by right clicking My Computer, Properites, Advanced tab, User Profile Settings button.
