ASP.NET MACHINE A USER ACCOUNT- WOT IS THIS?

Hi,

I noticed in my User Accounts I have acquired an account called ASP.NET Machine A...s. I don't know where this came from or when. Any ideas?

Also I installed a Maxtor One Touch external hard drive yesterday which is great but somewhere in the process it has altered my log on settings. For instance after not being on the PC for a while & then moving the mouse brings up the Windows XP log on screen whereby I have to click on my user account to get into the PC. Not a major thing but annoying as I have never had to do this before.

I wondered if all of the above was anything to do with my Maxtor installation as I saw it installing a whole load of administrative tools including Microsoft.NET Framework applications.

Thanks.
A

You can safely delete that extra account from Control Panel | User Accounts.
