hi all im on winxp pro and ive just booted my machine up, being on broadband i rarely shutdown.

anyways i boot up and instead of there being just the one "administrator" account which is mine there is now a "Zen Diagnostic" account which is password protected and an ASP.net framework account which i managed to delete.

What are these accounts and why are they on my pc? any ideas?

I cant delete the admin one the same as the ASP.net one as it has admin access rights. imon zen internet, reckon they are linked??????


PLEASE HELP
