I wanted to change the way users log on (no welcome screen) and found an
account I did not know was there. It says it is "ASP.NET MACHINE A"
limited account and is password protected. Could this be something connected
with the system or my ISP? I never noticed it before, It doesn't appear on
the Welcome screen and I wouldn't have known it was there if I hadn't wanted
to eliminate the Welcome screen since I only have one user now. Can I
safely delete this account?
Thanks
Glenda

It's needed by the .NET framework. No idea why but leave it alone.
