Windows 7: Strange Unknown Accounts In User list

Strange Unknown Accounts In User list

Hi there,

Wonder if you can help me.

Noticed something strange today and trying to work out whether anything sinister is going on with my machine. Ran virus scans and such, all came back clear.

I basically have a series of "Unknown Accounts" listed in advanced system properties.

This machine was from a clean install, and there have never been any other created user accounts.

Here is a pic of what is going on, along with the message when I try to delete them.

Any ideas?

In that example the user did have previous created user profiles he thought he had deleted. Not the case here.

Also, I cannot run lusrmgr.msc because i'm using Home Premium. Ridiculous oversight on Microsoft's part there. If you allow user accounts they should have atleast allowed the use of admin functions for them. :-(
