    2 users added into Administrator Group


    Hi. I have never ever seen these 2 "Sid" in Admin group. I only ever seen my username and administrator there. In all windows 10 I used and every time (on all windows install) I have checked that group, i only ever seen my user and admin there. So why are these 2 sid:s added in there, and what could've done this? And should I remove them? Is there a chance that HardeningKitty put them there when I used it?

    My friend does not have them there either, so I know it's not normal, please do check and see if you guys have it there, I bet you don't.

    Specific apps or services will require running as a Service Account, which is a non-admin user which isn't SYSTEM or yourself. This contains any security issues to the Service Account's basic privilege level, and no higher.

    NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE
    NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE are well-known (defined) SID's.

    Check what apps you have installed. For example, SQL Server creates a Service Account for itself.

    I have not installed anything that i know of that would put those in there. Would there be any issue removing them? I dont use sql or any server.

    Windows doesn't care if you remove those accounts, but whatever is running under their identities will stop working.

    As you noted, both accounts are not enabled on a clean system. Figure out what you've installed.
