I am finding two Unknown Accounts in my User Profiles.

I have a home network and wondering if that has anything to do with it. Primary computer (IBM) is not hooked up right now and is the one that is directly connected to internet. This one (DELL) is connected via hub as is laptop when used. I am also connected to a domain for work via VPN(though that will be stopping soon)and maybe that has something to do with it?

I need to do a major clean out (for space) on DELL and then a backup and came across this while doing something else.

All all virus defs are up to date and scans run often & regularly so all clear there (Norton SEP).

thanks for thoughts, advice.

Your network has nothing to do with user profiles on a system regarding such profile entries.
