ASP.net Machine Account

I am currently helping a friend who has a situation that I have never seen before. She was not able to access her user account. I went in uder my Adminstrative account in an attempt to remove her password (which solved the problem) During this process, however, while in Manager another User Account, I saw various accounts: Hers, Mine, Guest account and ASP.net Machine Account. I know that ASP is part of Windows Security, but do not think that the account should show when managing other accounts. Is this account a normal component of User Accounts and if it is displayed does it indicate that it may have undergone an unauthorized change? It does not appear on the welocme screen.

Hi Rich,

Please refer to old thread from 2004, post #1, quoted here for eases of use:

Quote:
When you installed updates or new software on your computer, you installed the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, which contains a common runtime application that may be required by applications you’re running. During this installation, an account named ASP.NET is created. If your computer previously displayed your desktop immediately after starting, you may notice a ‘Welcome’ screen when you start the computer with your existing user account and the ASP.NET account. This happened because there are now two accounts on your computer. The account does not allow remote or interactive login and only has "guest" level permissions. Therefore, it cannot be used by another individual or by Microsoft to log in to your machine. If you’re just using your computer for personal use (i.e. if you’re not a software developer who needs develop and test software with Internet Information Services (IIS)) you can safely remove this account in one of the following ways: 1) Delete the account, leaving the .NET Framework installed: • Launch the Computer Management tool within your Administrative Tools folder (under Control Panel) • Select the Local Users and Groups node • Click the Users sub node, highlighting the ASPNET account • Right click the highlighted account and choose delete 2) Uninstall the .NET Framework (note: this will cause applications using .NET Framework to stop working): • Open the Control Panel • Open Add/Remove Programs • Select Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 • Click Change/Remove Either of these approaches will completely remove the account from your system. More information about this problem is available on Microsoft’s website at The Welcome to Windows screen appears when you start Windows XP after you install the .NET Framework 1.1
