After a recent software install ,I have a new account ASP.NET, set up as administrator.
I think this is part of Microsofts system, Is it safe to leave it there or can I either remove it or change the password, without causing problems.
The current password is NOT accessable to me.

Thanks Bremmer.

As I am not a software developer, It seems all I have to do is remove the user account, however that will not stop anyone else (from outside) logging in to my machine.

If I try to remove ASP, I may make my computer unstable.

Big Brother strikes again.

It used to stop folk from getting on to there cuputers.
Those that never had passwords woke up to find that they now have to enter a password to gain access to their computers.
Unfortunately they never new what the password was so they were locked out.
It does no harm removing it.
