If you're wondering why the latest Nvidia driver installation has left you with a new system user named "UpdatusUser", you are not alone. This "feature" is tied to "NVIDIA Update" (not "NVIDIA System Update"). You can successfully remove the bizarre, forced system user by uninstalling "NVIDIA Update" from Windows 7's "Programs and Features" dialogue. If you have the user account, but do not have "NVIDIA Update" installed, you should try installing the update application (by selecting it as an option during a driver installation), restart your computer, and then uninstall "NVIDIA Update".
