I noticed new user account on my computer. It's called ASP.Net Machine Account. From research I think I understand that it is from .net framework when it is installed. So how did it get there?

As I posted in your other thread; this is a legit account.

ASP.NET is an open-source server-side web application framework designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. It was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services.
