The server farm account should not be used for other services

Reason:  The Farm Account, which is used for the SharePoint 2010 Timer service and the Central Administration site, is highly privileged and should not be used for other services on any computers in the server farm. Services in the farm were found to use this account.

Resolution:   Change the account that is used for other services

1.      Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a member of the Farm Administrators SharePoint group.
2.      On the Central Administration home page, click Security, and then in the General Security section, click Configure service accounts.
3.      On the Service Accounts page, in the Credential Management section, in the upper drop-down list, click the service for which you want to update credentials.
4.      In the Select an account for this component list, click the domain account that you want to associate with this service.
If you want to register the account that you selected on the SharePoint Foundation 2010 farm, click Register Managed Account.

6.      Click OK.
