    VUSR_TcsServer_CSS ?

    Does anybody know what the local account, VUSR_TcsServer_CSS is used for?

    The description for this account under Local Users and Groups shows:

    'Do not alter this account. Communication with the security subsystem could be disabled.'

    This is on a Thinkpad, XP Pro SP2 machine.

    I checked google but it did not turn up any hits.

    TIA

    Does this machine have any TeleCenter software installed?

    The only thing I could find out was that TCS stands for TeleCenter Software.

    Yup.. Definitely not part of the standard OS. Has to be 3rd party software.

    I can confirm your observation - I have an IBM thinkpad (R52) with all the IBM software installed.
    (As I wanted a German keyboard but English WinXP I installed everything by hand.) VUSR_TcsServer_CSS is actually member of localgroup administrators.
    One can remove the user from the administrators group:
    net localgroup administrators VUSR_TcsServer_CSS /delete)
    but after the next boot it is there again!

    I am working on a IBM Thinkpad that has the same user built in. I am going to assume it is an IBM software related item.
