    Hi guys fixing up my old computer for my mum and found that there was a weird account setup here. It comes up as an Administrator Account but i've got no idea where it came from???????
    Should i delete this account or what are my options.

    OK. A lot of people wonder about that account. Basically, it is installed with .NET 1.1 to get around some permissions issues for apps that run under that protocol. Harmless.
