    hi, I recently came across an account in the Net Framework part of Windows, titled as ''Account Unknown (S-1-18]''(<--something like this), this was however while I was in safe mode. Im not sure if this should be there or i should be worried? A

    Would really like any info on Windows NET FRAMEWORK, and what accounts should be running.

    Thanks for any advice,

    Turns out that this is normal. This is some of the info i have found.

    Well-Known Security Identifiers

    A security identifier (SID) is a unique value of variable length that is used to identify a security principal or security group in Microsoft® Windows® 2000 and Microsoft® Windows NT®. Well-known SIDs are a group of SIDs that identify generic users or generic groups. Their values remain constant. Table E.1 is a list of all SIDs in this category.

    The Unknown Account i had was the following>

    S-1-5-32-547/549 Power Users A built-in group. By default, the group has no members. This group does not exist on domain controllers.
