Strange user profile on Windows NT

By Bancal ·
Hello, everybody!

Exproring user profiles on my Windows NT 4.0 Server that installed as PDC I unexpectedly discovered strange local user profile named "Account Unknown". The former domain admin told me that creation date of this profile matches installation date of Windows NT Server.
I want to know if this profile is some kind of predefined profile that was automatically created during Windows NT Server installation process or this profile was explicily created by someone.

With best regards
Alias. :-)

Account Unknown is used for accounts that are deleted, from a domain that the computer is no longer a part of, or from a domain that is no longer in a trust relationship.

This account name comes from a valid past user logon to another domain that doesn't have any trust relationship with your current doman. I have this on my laptop which I use to logon to different domains.
