What is account unknown?

Goto system properties, click on the Advanced tab.

Then under User Profiles, click on Settings.

One of the accounts I have listed is Account Unknown. After that it lists the Administrator and two accounts I added.

I am using Windows XP Home. Any idea what this account is? Could it be the guest account (which I have turned off)?
Could it have something to do with a Windows 98 machine that uses ICS through this computer?

are you using ntfs file system?? if you are.. then you might have formatted the windows drive before then install windows again. then the previous windows account information will still remain on the file system. you can menuly delete the account since it's not needed anymore...
