Hi guys

I recently reformatted and reinstalled Vista after a bad case of rootkit and trojan infection. All went swimmingly and malwarebytes gave me a clean bill of health but recently I have noticed that I now have 2 administrator accounts present upon login and my pc tries to automatically login to one of them but doesn't because it says the password is wrong. I then log in to my own user account that I set up in my name.

Has anyone got any ideas what this could be? I definitely only had 1 administrator account and 1 user account when I first reinstalled the OS but I now have 2 administrator accounts and my 1 user account and I never set anything up to auto-login. This behaviour seems to have happened since Windows update installed Vista SP1 so I wonder if it has got anything to do with that?

Any thoughts will be much appreciated!

Hi

Does anyone have any ideas on the above?

Let me know if you think I should put this in another forum. I dont want to get the etiquette wrong!


EDIT: Moved to Vista, not malware related
