Hi

when I go in C:\Users, I see my user/admin folder called R along with Public. For some reason there's a "U" folder which I never made. This computer has one user who is the admin named R. Control Panel's users also shows just R. The U only shows in C:

I can't figure out why.
you can see it here

As usual, I don't know, but I can ask some questions that I
think will help you to figure it out.

Is there anything in the folder?
Do you remember what you were doing at 5:28 PM on May 24?
Does the folder come back after you delete it?

U just contains the same shortcut icons as R except onedrive and microsoftedgebackups. No files in the shortcuts of U in any libraries. It’s a good question about activity and strangely enough there’s not even software installed yet

✔ Best Answer
I think that you can just delete it (if you haven't already), and
check every once in a while to see if it reappears. If it does,
whatever you were doing at the time will probably be a good
clue as to the cause.

I think it is most likely that you told Windows to do something
that neither of us would expect to create a new user, but did.

#3 looks very like another (and new and different effort to) spam.

So should I now delete posts 4 & 5?

If I delete only 4 (since it refers to a post that doesn't exist) 5 will become 4 and then it will refer to a post that doesn't exist.

Oh wait, if I delete 4 & 5 then this post will become 4 and I'll have to delete it too.

So why am I bothering to post this in the first place?

I need a nap.

Stop! Now I have to delete that too since no one will know what you are laughing at.
