Hi

My PC used to show three folders in C:>Documents and Settings - Administrator, All Users and Owner. Recently, I installed and used a trial programme that caused my Desktop settings to completely change.

The easiest solution to rectify the problem was to use the System Restore facility in Windows XP Home Edition, which I did, and which successfully restored my PC to its previous state. After doing so, however, I noticed that an additional folder appeared in C:>Documents and Settings called Owner.ERIC containing a number of folders. I did change my Logon from "Eric" and old password to "Owner" and a new password.

Can anyone explain what this additional folder is and is this normal when System Restore is used?

The trial program wouldn't happen to be called aston shell would it? Or something similar.

Hi

No, it was Diskeeper Home Edition. Diskeeper did not work well with my system and despite trialling the Pro version and a great deal of help from their technical services I eventually abandoned it.

I think you have answered the question yourself really, it is there as the result of adding a username and password. I would just ignore it.

Hi

I have since deleted this entry after checking that it contained no files or folders that I needed. It hasn't affected the functioning of my PC in any way by doing this.
