So my computer has only 1 user account, I log on today and it has a new account on it called "bybdotiez". I have no idea how this got here, is it a virus?

No, it's a user account.

Did anyone use your computer on new years? I know someone used mine then and that's probably the only time it's ever been used by someone aside from myself.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Maybe you were drunk and made that account...

OS? Because there is no way to make a user account in 7 or 8 with you giving it permission.

windows 8, and yes that is what worries me because I have never given permission to anyone.

Just delete it.

if you get an error from a program when it tries to update, you found the culprit. Otherwise, delete and forget about it.

Delete it and run every virus scan you have to be safe. I'm pretty paranoid but better safe than sorry. What anti-viruses do you have installed?
