Hi, I have extra profiles that I cannot seem to ditch.
Also, I have some settings that tend to change weirdly to things that are definitely not default. For example, in Advanced Sharing settings, the Public Profile will get set to Turn on file and printer sharing [sentence edited for clarity]. Or Internet Options will change to have a custom setting for intranet (I have no intranet. I tend to set this to medium-high, same as regular internet. If it changed to the default setting, I could understand, but changing to something custom makes no sense.)
I also find stuff from programs I don't use.
Virus/malware scans come clean (can't get rid of all the PUP, though, because it recurs in some of those extra profiles, like defaultuser0), although today Avira was telling me it couldn't access the boot sector and some files. [edited to provide more details]
Here are my other threads:
The post where I thought I found a RA program, I am not so sure. When I first looked it up I found
https://github.com/rempl/rempl that matched the name
but on further looking it may well be
which seems to be something that is supposed to be there.
Yesterday after doing sfc, I found in my settings where it shows the profiles an "unknown profile" and I went ahead and deleted that. Today in Users, the Acer profile (which I deleted previously) has folders.
