Hi everyone, i hope i posted this in the right forum
My question is pretty basic:
I knew that someone had set up a account or two and made them hidden
So i used cp and entered control.exe userpasswords2
And sure enough I found two accounts that I did not create.

This all happened due to using teamviewer btw.

So my question is, if you delete accounts this way will this also delete anything they may have downloded?

If not is there a way I can check to see if teamviewer is still downloaded from them, or keylogger ect.

Thanks for any/all help

Welcome to G2G darbycrash,

I suspect something legit is occurring there, more than mystery. What are the names of these two accounts please?

If you remove an account through User Accounts, you should be given an option to save their data. But hold off on that please (been a few days by now, so not sure what has changed there).
