After installing the .net framework from the MS site, and rebooting, I was confronted by the welcome screen showing my account, which I had to click on to start Windows. As I don't usually have to do this, I checked in the User Accounts in control panel and found a new user account as follows

ASP.NET MachineA...

Limited Account

Password Protected

Can someone help with an explanation of what it is, do I need it, should I delete it, can I delete it if it is password protected, as I don't know what the password is. I am the computer administrator. Thanks

ASP.NET is a web development tool click here, and if you don't want it, it is quite safe to delete the account click here.
