Hello so,

 

 I was checking out a friend's PC a while ago at their request, and I noticed that when I right-clicked on their 'Documents' folder and clicked 'Properties' they had some weird user accounts listed that I know aren't theirs. Can someone help me with this please? They're using Windows 10 OS.

 

 

I ran MBAM (free) and it didn't find anything then I ran AdwCleaner and it got rid of a lot of threats but the mysterious user accounts remain.

The friend agrees these accounts don't belong ?


“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

Yes, the friend didn't recognize any of the accounts and the account names are a mix of random letters and sometimes, numbers.
