    Hello:
    Thank You for your Time,

    I have had my computer system cleaned by dell on call tech supports and I
    have performed a number of pc restores and still I am finding illegal user
    anonymous accounts on a continual basis on my windows vista home premium
    operating system.

    I have the administrator account enabled and the guest account disabled and
    the user account control is on and the windows firewall is enabled and block
    all incoming connections enabled and the windows defender program is enabled
    and still I am finding illegal user anonymous accounts on my windows vista
    home premium operating system on a daily basis, nights and weekends.

    These are the anonymous user accounts that I continue to find on my windows
    vista home premium operating system, daily, nights and weekends:

    security id: anonymous log on

    account name: anonymous logon

    account domain: nt authority

    log on id: 0x1a55a
    log on id: 0x19c43
    log on id: 0x19c98


    security id: sidney-pc/sidney

    account name: sidney

    account domain: sidney-pc

    log on id: 0x2a9a25
    log on id: 0x1b7ad
    log on id: 0x281568


    How can I stop these illegal anonymous user accounts on my windows vista
    home premium operating system?

    Thank You,

    You don't say what "system cleaned by Dell" means.

    If 'system cleaned' means your hard drive was erased and your software
    was reinstalled, then you are doing something that infects your computer.

    If 'system cleaned' means malware was removed then either the malware
    was not removed or it was removed and you did something to infect your
    computer all over again.

    I would be surprised to learn that Dell removed malware, because AFAIK
    they are under no obligation to do so, since your computer was delivered
    to you free of malware.

    You have to completely remove all malware from your computer, and you
    can do it three ways:

    1- Pay a professional to do it for you, which is what I recommend.
    2- Erase your hard disk and re-install your software from scratch.
    3- Attempt to clean your computer yourself using tools available on the web.

  3. Honestly, I don't think you're seeing any kind of "illegal" behavior here.

    Some services use anonymous logons (or "null connections") as part of their
    normal duties. The browser service is one example.

    Is the name of your computer "sidney-pc"? Is the name of your user account
    "sidney"? The second logon you quote is probably you logging onto your own
    computer.
