I recently wiped my hard drive and installed Windows 7 Home Premium. After completing installation and updates, I proceeded to do a bare metal backup using Windows 7's built-in Backup application.
In addition to creating a whole disk image, the application offered to backup files for the default admin account as well as my user account, but it also listed an account called "Updatus User." (This account does not appear in the Use Accounts control panel.)
Internet searches indicate the account is created by NVIDIA's update notification software, and can be deleted by uninstalling the software.
I'm not sure what to do; I want my computer to be up-to-date, but I've never heard of a program having the audacity to create a user account for itself, and I'm somewhat uncomfortable with the idea.
Any advice would be appreciated!
