If the account was called "ASP.NET Machine A" it was probably a user account created for the ASP.Net Worker Process (Aspnet_wp.exe) so that it is not running with administrator privileges. This helps to increase security because if there was a breach the worker process is running as a lowly restricted user rather than having administrator privileges on the local machine. You can remove this account, but it is required if you do asp.net development work or run a ASP.NET capable server that makes use of Microsoft's .NET runtime on your machine.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
