Recently an unknown account showed up below mine on the Lonovo Legion 5 laptop computer that I purchased from Microcenter a few months ago.
I followed the recommended windows 11 instructions and deleted it from my control panel account settings.
Although it was deleted, It showed up when I started the computer again the next day.
I ran my ESET antivirus "complete scan" and it did not reveal any problems
I have a feeling, something exists in the registry that's reinstalling the account, but I need instructions on how to find it and delete it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Did you setup ESET Anti-Theft? If so what you're likely seeing is the phantom account, it's part of the anti-theft system.
Yes, this sounds like the ESET Anti-Theft Phantom Account. More information on that feature/functions can be found on ESET's website here: https://help.eset.com/home_eset/en-US/antitheft_issue_no_fakeuseraccount.html?antitheft.html
