Windows 7: User accounts query

User accounts query

What's that "Homegroupusers$" thing in the users list? It does not appear in Control Panel > User Accounts.

Wanted to ask before deleting. Did not have it initially but I have no idea when it appeared. Also, why am I in the Home group users group along with Administrators group?

Are you sharing files in homegroup ? It's so that users can connect to any computer in the group transparently connected to homegroup without having user accounts on the pcs .

I do not use the home group feature at all. I am not joined to any home group.

No not at all. I suppose deleting it won't create new problems?

Just deleted it, did not create a problem.

Thanks for helping though.
