  1. New User Mysteriously Added?


    So a while back, I went to restart my pc, and I got a message that said something along the lines of "another user is still using this pc, if you sign out now they may lose work". I had never seen this before, so after googling the meaning, I checked the Users under task manager and found another account called "WGAUtilAcc". This is a personal computer no one else has access to. Upon looking the username up I found a lot of stuff about virus removal. Is this something I should be worried about? It takes up a significant amout of RAM, and sometimes CPU, so if theres a way to remove it, please let me know. Thanks all

  3. windows 10 - Microsoft Store & Adding new user

    Hi,

    Creating or adding new user account is one possible troubleshooting step that you can perform whenever you are encountering problems with Windows Store. Through this, we can identify if there are corrupted files in the current user that causes problem with
    Windows Store. If you are having problem adding account through Account settings, let us try these steps instead:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type this net localgroup administrator test /add and hit
      Enter
      .
    Keep us posted.

    Adding User Errors

    Hi,

    The error message that you’ve encountered can be caused by an invalid or corrupted registry keys. You may also get the same error when your computer shuts down
    unexpectedly. To learn more about your concern with adding a user, we’d like to ask the following questions:

    • Are you also getting the error when you add a user?
    • Were there any changes or updates made on your computer prior to the issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so for to resolve your concern?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you run the System File Checker tool. This will scan and restore the corrupted system files on your device. Check this
    article
    for the steps.

    We’ll wait for your response.
