When I open user profile accounts under control panel, it only shows 6 accounts.When I open user profiles under My computer/system properties/advanced, it shows 7 profiles, one called account unknown. Interestingly the memory used (gigabytes) is exactly the same as one of the known user profiles. Is this normal?

Moderaters, if this is in the wrong forum please move it to the correct one.

I'm using Microsoft Windows XP Home edition Version 2002 Service pak 1. Everytime I've tried to upgrade to service pak2 I've had (more) problems with my computer.

fried okra,

This is normal, the "unknown" account is a user account that was on your machine at one time that was deleted (from user profiles in the control panel). You can simply delete the "unknown" account from My computer/system properties/advanced and regain the space it is taking up on your HD.
