    Hi,
    An "ADMINISTRATOR Local account" appeared out of nowhere, is it possible to delete it and is the guest one necessary? ...thnx .....nick

    Looks like someone enabled the hidden local administrator account which is typically disabled by default.
    Maybe just open an elevated command prompt and type
    net user administrator /active:no
    and see if it goes away.

    Typed it in RUN, if that is elevated? but a black screen seems to flash very fast. .......nick
