Do you have Smart security or Nod32 ?

Anti-theft creates a user account, but its usually like John .

 

Run this from an elevated command prompt.

 

Net user perkrgouxi /active:no

 

This will disable it, instead of delete which could be re-creating itself.

 

Keep in mind, you do not want to disable anti thefts user account by ESET.

This is not a virus but a symptom of the Smart Security Anti-Theft doing something strange. If you set up Anti-Theft, you should disable it in Setup and then delete that user account. Reboot the machine and then enable Anti-Theft again and that should make the phantom account show with the correct name and not this random name.
