WHY is a Mozilla folder in LocalLow folder of the AppData folder, if no Mozilla product was installed at any time?  The only browsers on machine are IE11, Edge, Google Chrome.  The only EMail Client is the default Windows Mail.  Nothing else.  Nothing been ever else.  

 

Logical or sensible reason for this?

No Reason ? Who Knows ?

Run A Scan on it with your antivirus.

If its clear then just delete it.

So far, keeping those folders found in LocalLow of AppData.  I did run scans with Windows Defender  (the only Security & Protection software on the Windows 10 laptop), and no threats found.

Im talking about Deleting the Mozilla Folder that you say you havent Installled.

Any other Folders in there are probably Legit Folders for other Programs , so leave them as is.
