    In the users directory I have following sub directories:

    default
    Mynameuser
    public
    temp
    updateusUser
    updateusUser.PCofMyname

    I think I know what the 4 first ones stand for, but I'm wondering wether it's right having th 2 last ones as I am sole user and admin ?
    thx

    thank you for the blazing fast reply ! yes it's nvidia, you put me on the right track as I guess now it's been created by the "geforce experience" crap... I'm just worried about safety, what's your opinion ?

    I was a victim. :D

    I always prefer to remove the updater & update manually.
