I have a problem with a temp file in my Standard account. I went into Safe Mode, went into my Administrator Account and tried to open the file and a dialogue box came up saying "Access Denied."
This file was located in C:\Users\My standard account name\AppData\Local\Temp....
I looked in Properties and Under Current Owner, it said "Unable to display current owner. In the box below that it listed two Administrator accounts: my administrator name-PC) and Administrator Name-PC. I then clicked into Advanced and the two Administrator names were listed. I went back out of Properties, clicked back in and lo and behold, both administrator account names were removed (by what/who I don't know) and replaced with only my Standard Account Name with no privileges. The Administrator names were no longer there.
What lead up to finding this phantom temp file was when earlier I had gone into Firefox 5.0.1 and the program froze and faded out. I had to use blunt force (turn off the computer) to get out. In Safe Mode, under my Administrator Account, I removed Mozilla from the Programs and Features, then went through the files and removed anything left over. That's when I saw the Temp file. Name of the file was DF1F04 (TMP FILE).
I can no longer find this file at all now and I do believe there is something very nasty that's gotten into my computer and would appreciate any help you might have to figure out this mystery.
