Hi

Whilst trying to sort out problems relating to the "limited or no connectivity problem" I have found a user account that I did not create.

The account is only visible when I boot in safe mode.

I have looked in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
SpecialAccounts\UserList] as per thispage and the account is not shown.

When im logged in as administrator and I access user accounts via control panel, the Unknown account is not shown. If I try and create an account with the same name, it says as you would expect, "account name is in use"

My question is, how do I remove this account.

Cheers in advance
