Undeletable user account.

Hi all, one of my servers has recently been compromised. No suprise but the
hacker created himself a user account. The problem is that I can't seem to
delete the account. The account is not part of any group. When you look at
the account it and go to Member Of it doesn't show anything. When I try to
delete it as the local admin I get an error saying that "An error occured
while trying to delete the user" "The user does not belong to this group.'
I've tried adding the account to every group I can think of and then trying
but I still get the same error. Also this is a stand alone Windows 2000
Server thats not running Active Directory. Anyone ever seen this before?
