I have just cleaned up maleware on a PC. I have 2 user accounts, both standard. I had one that was administrator but must have deleted it, not sure. I was trying to set up user accounts so downloading .exe would not happen again. Now when I try to alter anything, I get a box ASP.NET Machine Account asking for a password. I can get to the desktop with no problem. I have 2 accounts on it and want to make one an administrator with password and the other as standard. It has 7 Home. Any ideas?

Open up a command prompt

 

CMD > Right click Run as Adminstrator. Type the following command.

 

net user

 

Is the Asp.Net Machine Account listed?

When I try to run as an administrator the UAC box opens for ASP.NET Machine Account and requires a password. I ran cmd (not as administrator) and ASPNET showed as administrator.

Go here and follow the steps shown to enable the Administrator Account. After the Administrator account is enabled, log into that and change the password of the ASP.NET Machine account.

The ASP.NET account is related to MS.NET install.

NET 1.1 may have been installed by some game or application that you put on your system...or by some other install of a different version of NET which also includes 1.1 components.
