    how do i get rid of other users on my Windows 10 home PC


    i noticed there is more than 1 person on this PC which i am concerned that someone may have gained access to my PC with some unfamiliar accounts that i don't technically recognize like for example

    my DragonsProphet Folder has these users on it
    All Application Packages
    All Restricted Application Packages
    Creator Owner
    Owner Rights
    System
    TrustedInstaller
    Users
    Admins including myself

    All the others are standard Windows accounts (eg. TrustedInstaller, SYSTEM) or user groups (eg. Administrators). They are normal and necessary for the system to function.

    i wasn't sure because as far as i know i claimed ownership of it but how can that be possible i only use my Admin account to login but i don't see why standard accounts have to be on the system if i am the only user on it

    As administrator there are a lot of things you can't do as they are owned system that is so you can't mess up the system

    SYSTEM is the sign-in credential used by Windows to run most of the processes that keep your PC working. Just look in Task Manager on the Details tab and you'll see what I mean. TrustedInstaller is specifically used for all software installs and updates (for Windows itself or any software you install). These and others are built-in accounts, are present in all Windows systems, and cannot be deleted. Windows cannot work without them.
