    Mysterious User


    I came across a mysterious user account on my PC called KCAV1_m0f3hql. When I tried to delete it I was told the folder was open; It`s 5.62 GBs. The name does not appear in the Control Panel under Users Name. It only appears under User Profiles. Where did it come from? I didn`t create it.

    I would like my system to have a Local System Administrator named KCav. What do I have to do in order to make the change?

    Occasionally certain programs may create a folder under C:\Users

    Have you examined its content?

    You can determine what is locking such a folder using one of several free programs, and have it deleted. E.g. Emco Unlockit.

    You can create a new account of course or you can change its user name:
