    Unknown User Account created after upgrading to windows 10. It comes back if I delete it.

    Original Title: Unknown User Account

    Hello,

    Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I am seeing an account that I did NOT create. So I deleted it by going into Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > User Accounts > Manage Accounts then I click on the unknown user account and delete it. That said.... It
    comes back. I have also followed the below suggestions from other posts and still does not seem to work.

    Let’s try simple steps and check if the user account is detecting and try removing it.

    • Press Windows key + R, type netplwiz and press Enter.

    • Check if the user account is appearing on the list.

    • Click on user account and click on Remove. (If user account appear on the list).
    Please advise.

    Thank you

  3. Unknown account keeps forming in Windows 10 64bit

    Hello Nearchos,

    There are different ways for us to remove this unknown user account from your computer. Let's try these troubleshooting steps below:

    Troubleshooting 1:

    • Access your Microsoft account here.
    • Click on Manage my Microsoft account as it will lead you to the website of Microsoft Account configuration.
    • Once logged in, you can manage any Microsoft accounts that have been created on your PC and you may attempt to delete the unknown user account.

    Troubleshooting 2:

    • Click on Family & other users.
    • Look for the unknown user account and click on "Remove" or "Delete".

    Troubleshooting 3:



    • Enable the built-in Administrator account or create a new administrator user.
    • Convert the first administrator account that you created during the Windows 10 installation to the local account. (If applicable)
    • Sign-in to Windows 10 using the built-in Administrator or additionally created administrator account.
    • Remove the first administrator account.

    We'll be here if you need additional assistance.
