Windows 8? Don't name your default user "User"

Wow, that's ... wow. 

 

Looks like it's been around for a while, too:

But then again, who names their account "user"?

 

If your name is Hauser (just an example)

 

Of course, if your name is Hauser, you should probably get your @$$ to Mars.

wholly crap batman, That's insane. I can remember times when this happen but it got flushed out just don't remember how, I have used the words "user" in the name in some cases such as HTPC User so I guess it's time for me to clean that up.

 

Thanks for the info....

Makes sense to me and that's y I use HTPC for the name as well, I just need to omit the "user" from the name and all will be well.

What no more L[ocal]USER account :(

 

In all seriousness, I have seen this (using user as the account name) a lot. It's an interesting issue. Have to keep it in mind
