    Profile Mysteriously Deleted


    Hello,Yesterday, when I turned my laptop on, my user profile was randomly deleted from my Windows laptop. On the screen with my profile picture and name, there is a “sign in” button rather than a box to enter my PIN, which is the only button that can be clicked. After clicking this button, it tried to force me to make a new profile with a new PIN, etc. I have tried restarting and shutting down multiple times and it still brings me back to the same screen. Also, I wasn’t doing anything unusual before this happened - I was just using my laptop for a few hours each day as I had been for the pas

  3. Mysterious New Profile

    A Dell update required a restart, so I did that. When I clicked on the lock-screen icon, I found my profile, as expected, but also "Administrator" had been added. I logged on to my profile, and went into PC Settings/Accounts, where I found my profile, shown as local and administrator, as it should be. I find no entry there for a profile known as "Administrator."

    I found no other profiles listed, so I went to Switch user and chose the new,mysterious profile, Administrator. I clicked on it, and to my surprise and dread, the new account logged me on without requiring a password, and proceeded to set up Windows 10. As soon as I could, I logged off of Administrator and returned to my own profile.

    As I was writing this, I realized that I had not logged off of my profile before choosing Administrator, so I logged off, tried again, and Administrator is still there. So far, the only location I can find for it is C:\Users\Administrator. Unlocker cannot delete all of the files upon restart, and "Take Ownership" has not helped. The files that I cannot delete all say that admin permission is needed to delete; I am the admin, but that does not seem to matter.

    Where could this mysterious profile have come from, and how do I get rid of it? So long as it is there, my computer is unprotected: I cannot give it a password, as it does not (as stated above) appear in Settings.
