    Oh guys, it is really DefaultUser0 with zero, and not ( ), my bad.

    And it was created after a clean install, downloaded from Microsoft official website

    Simply delete it? Or as someone said - to also remove from registry (How to do that ?:) )

    It is probably safe to leave it but what I did was delete C:\Users\defaultuser0 directory and remove the user with the command net user defaultuser0 /delete from elevated command prompt.

    That seemed good enough for me.

    There is quite some debate in the thread below about what else needs doing (delete references from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\ for example) but I didn't bother. as with the user and directory gone I figured that was enough.

    "defaultuser0" created on clean install of Anniversary Update - Microsoft Community

    Do you think Windows development team already encountered / heard of this problem and are working on an update so I will not have to do anything ?

    The guy on that Microsoft Community thread above is following it up with MS level 2 support. Perhaps they'll do a fix - who can say....
