Recently my computer has been performing slower than usual.
Yesterday I discovered a new user profile with a random letter combination name appeared in my Documents and Settings folder, but it did not crop up in the list of my users in the Control Panel. The Properties said that user was created on the 19th of December. Yet when I checked the Events Log I found that a service called SyssssLts was trying and failing to log in as that user employing a newly generated password for at least a month and being unable to do so for want of a file. My antivirus programs were showing nothing. I deleted the user and unchecked the systls service in the MS Config. The next time I rebooted the profile did not reappear, however I don't think the problem has gone away.

I would be grateful for assistance.
