Strange guest

Post by malbob » Thu Aug 16, 2018 7:55 pm

When I booted into my mint 18.3 this morning I found a strange user login namely "guest-f102vrc" . This is not mine and it has wiped out all my documents from the documents folder and I cannot do anything with the folders . The Documents, Downloads, photo's etc folders are not showing up in the files folder or in the home folder . To me this is very strange .Maybe someone has infiltrated my computer .

Out of curiosity, if you run last in your terminal, what is the output?
Similarly, what does sudo lastb say?

Thank you Fred . Unfortunately I am unable to comply because my mint 18.3 became so unstable that I removed it from my computer and installed Ubuntu 18.04 Mate .From my point of view mint 18.3 latest updates with a new kernel is the cause of making this OS useless . I also was not inspired by the fact that someone appears to have got into my system and changed things around which made it worse .
