My Win XP Box has been Hacked?
I am running Windows XP Pro. Today I was in the User Accounts window. I normally have 3 users running and the guest account disabled. But today I noticed there was an extra user account. When I saw this I freaked. The users name was " ASP.NET Machine A... " set up as a limited account and is password protected. This looked really suspicious to me. Also the user does not show up on the initial login screen only in the User Accounts window. Is this a hacker or something like a program using an account? I have not deleted the account yet because I would like to find out what this is. If it is a hacker is there a way to find out who it is?
Please help. Thanks.

you might like to see the ms site for .ASP.NET this seem to me a whole line of FREE downloads and developers tools for this. I would like to learn more but I am not that up to date on ms programing. could someone who is a good programer look this over, (1) would this be useful, (2) would this be hard to learn?
