    User Name I don't Recognise


    I've noticed a user appearing in my Event Viewer. I also found the user by digging through the registry - not under any obvious users but when I click into various keys re permissions I can see it there.


    Could this user be appearing because they are part of our Microsoft family account? Or is it because they have a profile on this pc?


    As far as I'm aware there is no profile belonging to that email/user on the pc, however I'm wondering if it could be a local account used by another admin on the pc? I do know there is someone by that name on our Microsoft family account as a child, but they have never had direct access to this pc.


    Thanks

    :)
