    Welcome to TenForums, Slizzer.

    Yeah, that's pretty weird if it means nothing to you. What do you get by executing "net users" at the command prompt?

    On second thought, Slizzer, and actually looking closely at your screenshot, it looks like you Computer Name is simply "DESKTOP-JJAUBEE". Is that your only problem, or is there an actual unknown user lurking?

    There is nothing here to suggest "JJAUBEE" is a user name, just part of the computer name,

    C:\Users\Slizzer>net users

    User accounts for \\DESKTOP-JJAUBEE

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Administrator DefaultAccount Guest
    Slizzer
    The command completed successfully.


    C:\Users\Slizzer>

    I can't remember calling my pc "JJAUBEE" I just got paranoid and thought that, "JJAUBEE" was also an user, man I got so worried. I have scanned with malwarebytes, and Hitman Pro. Nothing found.

    Thanks for your help guys, calmed my nerves down, still pretty weird I have that for a computer name, I have no distant memory of it lol.

    As the computer must have a name the OS installer will provide a random series of characters. You are given a opportunity to override this or it can be changed at a later time. It is a good idea to give it a name that has some meaning to you. Sometimes these random characters may resemble a name.

    Windows names the 'machine'/'device' automatically to keep track of your devices as you can only install Store Apps on 10 devices maximum.
