I am trying to delete another Administrator account which I did not create, but I cannot login as Administrator because it is password protected.

I need to terminate and delete REMOTE ACCESS/REMOTE DESKTOP devices, drivers and configurations from my computer. An account named "Owner" was created and because it is password-protected, I was not able to do anything with it. So I created another user account which I named as Administrator. Then I tried to delete "Owner" from my system. It got deleted, but the next morning it appeared again. I found a ton of unfamiliar devices and drivers associated with Remote Desktop which I have never seen before. And when I uninstalled them, it would reappear within minutes, as if I hadn't touched the file. On Windows startup, there are 2 boxes: 1 with "Owner" as the login name, and the password line is blank. (2) A second box with "The system could not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again."

Note- Owner appears in Belarc Advisor's "System accounts" and my login name "Extra" appears in the "User Accounts list".

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME ???? I already did a full system Rescue and Recovery because of issues. My computer stayed clean only overnight. The next day I found all types of Spyware, Bluetooth devices, and Remote Desktop references in my hard drive.

I need to get to the source of my problem. My changes are not saved because I am not the true Administrator. I need to eliminate the "Owner" account because it may be that changes are made to my computer via Remote Access.

What I don't understand is that how Remote Access was established when I did a full system Rescue and Recovery. Could someone have accessed my uninfected computer via Bluetooth first? Before it got this bad, Bluetooth kept on appearing, and bluetooth/modem device was found whenever I would turn my computer on. But I do not have anything visibly connected.

My computer was fine until just recently. I had disabled Bluetooth and Remote Assistance months prior and never had issues where these devices kept popping up.

I don't have anything personal in my computer now. I saved everything to a portable HD. CAN SOMEBODY OUT THERE PLEASE HELP ME????? I am going around in circles and not getting anywhere.

I would really appreciate any kind of input.

thanks again!!!


What do I do???
