Windows10's big Update occurred exactly when my cable modem slowly died.  I thought I was looking at malware at first, not hardware.  I got a little delete-happy and figured I horked up my install, so did a Windows Settings refresh while saving my data.  Yet now my login is 'Administrator' and I can't change it, yet I have to provide administrator privilages to move files to different folders.  Flat out can't save in other folders, and am prompted for every move I make.  Program defaults aren't 'sticking' either.  Which smells like fish to me.


autoruns64.exe has a "TotalVrus" check feature, and this entry with a lingering 'L' is missing in the Startup Database (as if it were just a typo, extra character).  It scored a 0/62 for being a threat, if their source is legit:
