    Windows 10 Remove new Accounts

    I'm not able to remove some sort of hidden account?


    I am the only administrator on this account and there are no other accounts / guest account active. No accounts are showing up under Settings > Accounts also.

    EDIT: Or how do I completely remove a profile?

    Do you have HomeGroup or other networking schema set up?

    I don't know anything about IIS, but this article might help you straighten things out.

    Good luck, that's all I can offer.
    Please post what you find out - thanks.

    IIS AppPool accounts are not real accounts. You would remove this by going into IIS Manager, going to the App Pools section and deleting the DefaultAppPool. It may also work to uninstall IIS, but I'm not 100% sure that would remove the app pool account.
