Windows 10: Unknown User Solved

  1.    12 Sep 2016 #1

    Unknown User

    I having errors in Event Viewer related to DCOM regarding permissions.
    I have been trying to find those APPID in Regestry and changing Ownership, and giving "Full Rights" to Administrator.
    On that Permissions Screen there is a Unknown User {1-xxxxx}.
    I think this "Unknown User" is the old User from Win 8.1

    Question: How to Clear /Delete/Rename or what to do regarding this User system wide.

    Hello Adalwar, :)

    If you like, you can safely select and "Remove" the "Account Unknown" user from the security propertied per item you come across it at.

    "Account Unknown" is a general term for an account that is not currently available either since it was deleted or a user on another homegroup/network PC not currently connected.
