  1. How to get rid of meta?


    I never opend instagram,or eny other acc. with meta, yet META installed instagram "non-user" acc.on my pc, happily admitting it's collecting my personal info. I found it in microsoft acc. in passwords & personal info with password but no username. I can delete it from that section but I doubt that would do anything. Reading only about five pages of their milion page policy was enough to see that. Does enybody know what to do? Is it just me? Is this normal these days...?Thanks for noticing.

    :)

    What are [[meta]] [[meta-new]] files?

    Great suggestion! I suspected Ashampoo Backup. Then ran Everything and found hundreds of [[meta]]s. I noticed that the dates and times of the files coincide with the scheduled backup time (Friday at 1:00). So that's the culprit. I will contact Ashampoo.

    [[meta]]
    or[[meta-new]]

    That's exactly what I saw, at the top of the filename list. Not all directories, just system. Nothing happens when I click on them. Now, after a few updates and reboots, they seem to have gone away. So I can't provide a screen shot. As far as I can tell they have nothing to do with a metafile.
