Windows 7: ASP.NET user account... delete or disable it?

ASP.NET user account... delete or disable it?

I reinstalled and updated Windows. Then created a back-up image. Whenever reinstalling from this image, I see an extra User account called ASP.NET

My understanding it that it has something to do with the Net4 framework installation (perhaps Windows was not fully updated before I made the image).

Should I be concerned about security and thus delete or disable it? I've read mixed thoughts:
ASP.NET account SevenForums thread

Why is there an ASP.NET account on my machine?
What is the password?

How does one prevent this from happening again on future Windows installations (should I keep rebooting & checking for updates even when Windows says there are no more)?

Thanks.

I have that on one of my three systems. Haven't found out why yet, but did disable that user today. I will wait to see if anything screams at me, and let you know if it does.

Anything happen, Saltgrass?

Anyone else with knowledge or thoughts about this?

Thanks

No, so far nothing has screamed at me, but I haven't used all the programs on the system. I was thinking about looking through what files might have the ASP.net set as users, but that might take a long time.

Seems like I remember some way to list what programs a user is involved with, but I will have to check.

Have you had your entry disabled?

Edit: I did find the following link that explains aspnet_wp.exe, which seems to be the reason for the ASP.NET user.

Hey guys...at my golf course, the handicap computer has this same account. It was the first time I'd ever seen it much less heard of this. After reading up on this from the links provided, I'm just going to simply delete that account.

If any thing goes awry I'll post back in this thread.
