    As long as the folder has the "Read-only" bit set, You will not be allowed to rename it!

    I think spunk has the best solution but you have to know how to handle permissions:
    Change Permissions of Objects for Users and Groups in Windows 10 Windows 10 User Accounts Tutorials

    If you follow that way, try it in Safe mode where BitDefender is not active.
    (BitDefender some(many)times turns PC into...κοτέτσι, κουμπάρε:))

    Hey guys, I come back because my issue insists. I can't reproduce anymore by myself, but random times I see the folder there.

    I already tried safe mode and also I tried to find any bad sector. No luck!
    @werby, what exactly you suggest?

    PS: Btw, the "Public" name of the folder was my choice. I just give this name as the filename. I don't think that Windows as OS is so stupid that can't recognize that isn't the Public folder.

    Taking a look in BitDefender forum I noticed that many users complain about some "ancient" issues with their desktops.
    As usual, support team -when appears- asks for log files, then disappears again and life goes on...fooling users.
    Unfortunately, I was one of their victim.

    I suggest, if it's easy for you, to uninstall this Romanian κουράδα and see if it helps.
    Find out how to properly uninstall BitDefender in their forum.
    I think that common uninstall way does not completely uninstall it.

    Φιλούθκια!!!

    Before 3-4 days, I complete uninstall the BitDefender Security Suits for another reason.
    This crazy folder appear again :'(

    Because it does not appear at regular intervals, you have to focus on your actions just before folder reappearance, finding -perhaps- what's causing that...or else, just wait for a few days (17 Oct. OS upgrade to "Fall") and all your problems will be gone...

    PS: Sometimes, BitDefender "miracles" appear even after completely uninstall.

    Good luck!

    Finally, I have understood what happens!! It's about the Microsoft Edge. The problematic folder appears when I download a file, and I choose "save as" and not the direct run option. On the other hand, it doesn't happen when I right click on a photo and choose "save as" or when I use different browser.

    How it's even possible to solve something like this? I repeat that before some months, I created on my desktop a temporary folder with the name Public. I download there some files, and then I move the folder somewhere else. After that, in randoms occasions, the folder appears again on my desktop. Now I'm pretty sure that the folder appears when I download a file with Microsoft Edge.

    PS: I have successfully installed the Fall Update

    Change Edges's download path. It's in settings (three dots in the upper right corner), Advance settings (almost at bottom) and browse for new folder... hope it helps
