I ran rogue killer to see if it would pick up anything on my laptop. it found some pums in registry so i went and 'cleaned'  them. now i see my user folder in the desktop. i deleted it and it destroyed my user in windows 8. ive since created a new user and deleted the old one. having said that, i can see the new user folder in the desktop. i remember seeing some hide/unhide desktop registry entries and i didnt think anything of it. how can i hide this folder or 'fix' the issue?


thank you

Hello nyjon. I've put out a call for someone who knows about Rogue Killer to look at this topic.

Hopefully someone will respond soon.

Could you describe what you did exactly to remove your user account?


As explained in the documentation, http://www.adlice.com/softwares/roguekiller/documentation/


PUM.DesktopIcons [Possible desktop icons hijack. Those lines when only PUMs are detected should be ignored, because they probably result of a user configuration]
Example: [PUM.DesktopIcons] (X64) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel | {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} : 1 -> FOUND
