I just stumbled across referance to Account unknown

I was cleaning up this Compaq Presario F700 Win Vista Home Premium when
I stumbled across a hidden .docx file. Not being familiar with that
extension I investigated a bit further... I googled the extension found
out that it is a extension designed to make an Office document into an
html file (with some format loss). Is that correct?

Investigating further I clicked on properties>security tab and ran
across something interesting. In the group or user names an unidentified
account user appears!
It is 'Account Unknown(S-15-21-2817377724-365178722-714591354-1001)

Does anyone know any legitimate Win Vista OS account like this?

Thanks ahead of time for your responses!

Files with the .docx extension are Microsoft Word documents created with MS
Word 2007. There's nothing inherently sinister about them.

I can't answer your question about the account. What does "cleaning up"
mean? Did you have some reason to suspect the computer is infected?

Cleaning up means like Windows Defender scan Clearing up all the temp
files... You know regular maintenance.

Yes I wasn't terribly worried about the the extension as was the
surprise account that I can't seem to find reference to anywhere else...
