ASP.NET User Account

I just realized that I have a ASP.NET user account set up on my machine.
Ummm I dont remember being notified of a creation of any accounts when I
downloaded the .net framework. I believe thats when it happened though.

Anyway what the hell is this sneaky little back door used for?

from MSDN ...

For additional security, the ASP.NET application worker process
(aspnet_wp.exe) runs using an account (ASPNET) with weaker privileges than
the Local System account. By doing so, an intruder will not have
administrative access if security is breached. This is because the Local
System account has access to almost all resources on the local computer not
specifically denied to it.
