Windows 7: New user created automatically with each restart

Can you also provide a screenshot of all of your installed Programs in Control Panel? Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

If it's not an infection, and it's not Windows Update which would show up in google search for the User name, then it must be an obscure backup or other program which can be isolated by process of elimination.

thank you for the logs, give me some additional time to look through them. I do see that you have utorrent installed. If you are using torrents, your machines possible infection rates increases significantly.

Edit: Okay, I looked through the logs and other than the torrent software you appear to be clean. NO guarantee however.

I know a lot about malware but I am not an expert.

I would like you to scan with Hitman Pro as another run just to see, it certainly cannot hurt.

1.) Download hitman pro here for your windows version and install it.

2.) Open hitman pro. Click next.

Read and Accept the license agreement, then checkmark the box and click next.

Choose to only run a one time with this computer and click next

The scan will start, wait until it completes, then click the save log button.

Choose a place to save it for upload later

Close out of hitman pro.

Find the log file wherever you saved it and upload it using the paperclip

Is there any way to track this user creation? Any tool that will track the user creation and corresponding process that initiates the activity?

log looks good.

Unfortunately I no of know way to track this. Only suggestion I can think of is to keep checking computer management local users and groups after every reboot. It might seem annoying but try checking it after running some applications. Then restart, narrow a list down to find the cause.

One of the Windows logs in the Computer Management>Event Viewer may log it, possibly System.

Waiting to see the installed Programs list.

Check again at msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding all MS) to see if anything is checked now.

I google the text and ID# of repeat errors to see how others resolve them. In this case there is no known standard use of that account name found by Google so it must be randomly generated. It also appears to be a part of MS Security Audit, possibly run on or by your domain. Security Auditing Overview

Is this PC used for work? If so I would consult your IT dept.

I would not have Catalyst bloatware, Komodo, and would question Solid Fire Gold demo, Sentinel Protection installer.

None of those Services (after hiding all MS) need to start with Windows except your AV.
