Windows 7: Unknown User Account

05 Apr 2010   #1

Dual: Windows 7 PRO 64 bit & Windows Server 2008 64 bit
Unknown User Account

Hello, I noticed in some of my folder permissions there is an account that was not made by me and is not listed under Users in Control Panel. I have included a picture.
I am currently dual booting server 2008 with my windows 7 but I noticed that account before that. Any ideas? I currently use Microsoft SE and Avast Free Edition. The account in question is the one with all of the numbers.
