I have a mystery for you. Several of our Windows 7 computers have a
strange folder on them. It is named C:\Users\COMPUTER123, where
computer123 is the name of a specific laptop on our network. The create
date on this folder is 12/16/14. All of the laptops involved were imaged
in the summer of 2015. The folder is not on the image.
The folder is not username.computername, which happens from time to time
when a profile gets corrupt.
I took a very quick look at the hard drive of computer123, and didn't see
any programs out of the ordinary.
The contents of the profile folder are all your typical profile folder
things. All defaults.
No errant local accounts. Or domain accounts.
I have seen this folder on the 5 random laptops around the network that I
checked today; the only ones I did not find it on are those that are
freshly imaged in the office.
So... how did this folder get created, and with a date that was 10 months
prior to the laptop getting imaged? Looks like the typical default
profile stuff. But we don't have a user account to match, so how would a
profile get created without an interactive or remote logon? Computer
accounts can't log on to other computers in a way that creates a profile,
Hmmmm. I feel like I must be missing something obvious. Can anyone shed
any light on this?
