Malicious "Administrator" account setup... How to delete RRS feed

  • Question

  • It looks like I have a malicious / unwanted "Administrator" account on my computer and I am not able to delete it.  I have tried to use "Safe Mode" to try and delete it, but with no success... it asks me to select and account:  Stanley  or  Administrator.  I have tried both to try and turn-on some functions, but they do not work.  I believe this to be the reason why I cannot let OneCare activate my Firewall... I have tried the Firewall Repair from OneCare, but once the computer reboots... it is back to being disable.

  • I just came across your post in the Off Topic folder where you posted, hence the delayed reply.

    Administrator is a built in account that normally doesn't show up at boot, but can be brought up in Safe Mode.

    In any event, if your firewall will not stay on and the repair tool doesn't resolve it, please contact support.
