ASP.Net machines user accounts - what are they?

  ambepc 21:34 25 Aug 03

A while ago I was checking through my user accpunts on my windows xp system, and I came across a strang user account which had apparently appeared from nowhere. It was called ASP.Net Machines - Limited user account, password protected. I did not create this account and also cannot access it as it is password protected.I have no idea where it came from or when it was created or by whom. I am the only person with access to my computer apart from my 3 year old son who occasionally visits the cbeebies website. can anybody shed light on this matter and advise me as to what to do?

Don't worry. They're from updates from Windows Update. I had one like it and I just leave it alone! :)

Just leave it alone...Unless your a developer ;-)
