Windows 7: Account Unknown Permission Removal

Account Unknown Permission Removal

I right clicked on a file and saw a permission for Account Unknown.

Account Unknown Permission Removal-account-unknown.jpg

It is inheriting permissions.
How do I remove it?
Not just from that file, from all of my computer.

As an extra question, how can I make my router firewall more effective? I can get on the router page on the web, but what kind of options can I choose?
(I already have Comodo on my computer).

One more question, some files on my computer has allowed "Users" full access. How can I see all of those files, and give users "read" access or non-access. (I am the only user on the computer and I am the administrator. Just worried a bit about security).

Thanks.

Click Orb, Right click on Computer and click Manage. Expand "Local Users & Groups" then click on Groups. On the right hand pane, go into Administrators or Users. You will see the Security Identifier (SID) from your picture above. Just remove the account. It is either an account that existed on the computer previously, or an account which belongs to a network (a corporate environment). If the computer is not connected to the corporate network then it won't be able to translate the SID to the Display Name.

Thanks for your reply.
Can it be the other windows in the other partition?

Here is what was under Users:



What is interactive if S-1-5-11 is the other windows in the other partition?

P.S.: What is Orb?
