When installing the agent, should i create a new Windows user account?

In most cases, keep the default option of creating a new account. You only need to specify an existing account in two cases: if the machine is a domain controller, or if you are installing Agent for Hyper-V on a failover cluster node (you need to provide the same account on all nodes of the cluster, so that each agent can back up virtual machines that migrate between nodes).
