comment USB mouse incredibly slow on brand new laptop
@kmote, to vote to delete a post needs a negative score, so if I want to vote to delete I first need to downvote. Alternatively I could flag as not an answer without downvoting, but then a moderator needs to spend their precious time on it, while (in theory at least) the community can handle these non-answer posts themselves. Also, Andy, didn't you see this warning? Also, I don't find writing Micro$oft very friendly either.

Oh well, @Joe, if the computer doesn't even start okay, then that probably explains the weird user name too, right? I'd just wipe everything.

Ah, beware: in Task Manager you should see Image Name = System and User = SYSTEM, so make sure to use menu "View" to enable columns if needed. On Windows 7, I see this, including Image Path = C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe, but no value for Command Line.

Just FYI: in Windows 7 running in Parallels on a Mac, I see user name SYSTEM in Windows Task Manager. And netstat -aon | find "139" also happens to show PID 4 just like for you, and netstat -abon shows many hits for that PID 4, but also shows no executable for any of those. Like for port 139: TCP 10.211.55.5:139 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 4 Can not obtain ownership information.

By the way, "with no IP address": not seeing a remote IP address is okay, in this view, I think. The remote IP 0.0.0.0 with remote port 0 indicates anyone COULD connect (if your modem/router allows for that), but I think there's simply no column in that overview to show you WHO is connected, if anyone.

"The Korean characters mixed with Japanese and Chinese, Latin and Aramaic, characters is that normal in Unicode strings?" that MIGHT just be an interpretation; if the user name is made out of random bytes, then trying to interpret these bytes as Unicode (more specifically: UTF-8 encoded Unicode) then you might see those funny characters. But if one would interpret them with some other encoding (like, bad but illustrative example: morse code, or music), one might see different things. But I guess it should not be random bytes to start with...

Ah, my bad: I thought you somehow saw the username of whoever connected, but it's the user name of the Windows process. Then netstat -aon | find "139" can tell you if anyone is (currently) connected. The very low PID indicates that this is started at a very early stage when Windows is started, I think, but I'm not using Windows so I'm not 100% sure about that. Can you see the same weird user in the list of Windows users, somewhere in Control Panel? Also: the standard Windows Task Manager can show the PIDs too; maybe you can tell which program is related to that then?

More to investigate: does the port checking tool also give you the IP address of the client that is connected? If not, then what does something like netstat -aon | find "139" give you? Given that IP address, a whois might give you some clue about where they're connecting from, assuming it's not an address in the private ranges for local networks. Also, are you saying your WiFi is not protected? Then it could even be a neighbour (possibly with an infected computer) that is connecting.

Not a solution, but just in case you're actually using the wrong password: isn't there some Microsoft website on which you can log in using the same username and password? Just to confirm that you're really using the password you used last? Also, if you're using any funny characters: are you sure the keyboard layout is the one you expect?
