    There are two users on your machine, "annengo" and "annovisngo". The rest are various services that are either running or have run on your machine..

    You are fine..

    What is suspicious is that you don't have a user account it seems? You must be using the root account which isn't a smart thing to be doing. Other than that,it looks fine..
