I just discovered an account in my computer that i did not create.
"ASP.NET Machine A..."
I googled it and it is microsoft.
I just installed ie 8 a few days ago so i assume thats where i got it?
is it safe to remove?
I do not want it.
NEVER GAVE ANY PERMISSION FOR IT TO BE PLACED IN MY COMPUTER.

Such righteous indignation over such an insignificant item, which would
be easily resolved with a web search.

Asp.net is an account created when you install the .net framework. It's
for developers to test their code. It does nothing harmful to your computer.

If you're not a .net developer, remove the user accounts from Control Panel.

In Leonard Grey
Asp.net is an account created when you install the .net framework.
It's for developers to test their code.

Then the account should only be installed when Visual Studio is
installed.

its not the size of its significance that is the problem.
its the fact that an account was installed with its own protected password
without my explicit permission on my computer.
thank you.

Asp.net should not have any password at all. If it does, you are quite
possibly infected with malware.
