    New user ASPNET (Net 1.1)

    Hello, I'm not sure if I should be posting this question in the Windows XP section but I'll try here. To use Sony Acid 5.0 I was required to instal Microsoft Net 1.1. I've noticed that a new user has been created:

    Name: ASPNET
    Full Name: ASP.NET Machine Account
    Description: Account used for running the ASP.NET worker process (aspnet_wp.exe)

    ASPNET is a member of the user's account.

    I'm wondering if I can delete the user ASPNET. Is there any security risk involved with leaving it. Do I need it? I hope someone can shed some light on this.

    Thanks,

    Chris (Hunt)

    A quick Google for "ASPNET user" turns up this explanation.

    Hi Chris - I found this interesting reading: ASP.NET & applicational domains (AppDomain) at http://www.codeproject.com/aspnet/aspwp.asp. I guess if you really wanted to delete this account you'd have to change the Machine.config file too so that ASP.NET doesn't constantly try to create its worker process. <img src=/S/sing.gif border=0 alt=sing width=24 height=20>
