Default Unauthorized account creation

sponsored links

 
Im connected through a router w/ a built in firewall and im using npf 2003. While cleaning up windows i went to the "user accounts" under the control panel. When i went there, an account was activated that was not created by me. Im the only one that uses my computer, so im positive that no one in my household is playing a game on me. The account type was "limited w/ password protection." Since im the computer admin, i deleted the account and started to scan for trojans/viruses. Nothing came up. I searched windows explorer to find the "documents" folder that was associated w/ the new account, but all i could find was the .jpg icon of the user. I play games online from time to time, but thats about it. Is it really possible for someone to bypass the routers firewall and nortons going undetected?

Yes. Firewalls, routers etc are only preventitive measures they are bypassable. Your house may have locks on the windows and doors but someone can still break in its the same with computers.
