That means you have installed Microsoft Net Frame Work, goto into your Control Pannel, User Accounts can you see the Net Account in there?

Don`t do it! Leave it alone! It`s not doing any harm and is part of Windows XP Operating System or whatever - it`s not a threat. You might even have a guest account on the system - do you kill guests as well? They`re not a threat either ;0)
