BOGUS local account reappearing

Recommended Posts

I have ESET and content screening software on three computers: two desktops and one laptop,

One desktop is Windows 7, the other desktop and the laptop are Windows 10.

ONLY ON THE LAPTOP a "local user" is configured that I never put in there. (fkiynygdck)

I go to settings and delete it. Wait a while and it reappears.

I run a complete scan with ESET and I am clean.

I run a complete scan with MALWAREBYTES and I am clean.

Yet, this "local user" is persistent.

Do I have something to be concerned with here?

You have activated Anti-Theft on "DO....Y-LAPTOP", the name of the phantom account is "zyssowmqbx". You can disable AT via the AT portal https://anti-theft.eset.com. On "DESKTOP-J.....J-R......p" the name of the phantom account is "fkiynygdck".

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Feeling better!

Yes, I did, indeed, enable anti-theft on the laptop.  Now I will go about with peace on this account.

Thank you!
