Windows 7: hidden standard user account

hidden standard user account

soz if in wrong place, but i had no idea where to make this topic...

so just found out that theres a hidden account in account manager, that doesnt show in C:/users folder or in LogOn screen, and it wasnt there few weeks ago.

any ideas how it was created? since noone else uses my PC then it was kinda a surprise for me.

EDIT: yeah soz, googled it and found another topic about it in SF and so on... soz but im a NEWBIE in stuff that i dont know how they happen and i like to panic alot since pretty much every week something in my pc stops working...

Where did you get your copy of 7

I will know more when you answer.

or

It could have been put there by one of your programs, they sometimes create an account to operate.

or it could be malware

Make and antivirus scan and download and run malwarebytes.

If it was put there by NetFrameworks it is not a problem, that is how netframeworks operates. Here is more information on NF

A software component that can be added to Microsoft Windows."
The Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5 redistributable package installs the .NET Framework runtime and required files needed to run developed to target the .NET Framework v2.0.

- When you install the .net framework, it creates a limited account to run with for security purposes and it stays hidden
