Hi, I have on my computer a redundant account, it shows in all users but not on the welcome screen. If I right click and select properties it occupies 131mb of space.However if I right click and select delete I get the message "Cannot delete Google,check disk is not full ,access denied". I have tried to delete in safe mode -same message . Anyone know how I can finally delete this account, incidentally if I select explore there is NO data shown for this account.

In that case it is probably not malware related. In most cases you can't delete the folder until you haveremoved the account. go to start then control panel select user accounts Does your account have administrative priviliges? if so you should be able to remove the account in question which should remove the folder.

Alan.
