I need some help to clean up an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop that has been upgraded to Win 10 Pro from Vista SP2 via Win 7(not sure which version).
The hard drive is partitioned into C:(ACER) and D:(Data). The root of C: drive appears to have a lot of files and folders left over from the previous installations that I would like to get rid of. In particular the ComboFix entry, which appears to duplicate everything under the 'This PC' entry and causes any file/folder search to list its findings twice, once under 'This PC' and once under 'ComboFix'. ComboFix was installed under guidance from Bleeping Computer when the Vista install went wrong sometime ago and by mistake not uninstalled.
I tried to contact ComboFix via their ‘Contact us’ email but it was returned as undeliverable 3 times and I am loathed to simply delete the ComboFix entry without guidance.
I have attached 3 Print Screens pictures to assist. The folders starting with GWAP-under the C: drive are ones that I have identified as possibly being unwanted.
There is no intension of going back to Vista or Win 7, so presumably the C:\Windows.old and C:\Windows.old.000 folders can be deleted once I have moved everything that is wanted.
Any help would be much appreciated.
