  • Hi Dean Plaia,

    If your computer has not been used by others, user account should not be created or modified.

    Could you insert a screen shot of "Users" folder in Windows/File Explorer, or share it via cloud storage such as OneDrive, Dropbox, etc?
      Here's my sample.
      

    If a folder related to "Dean Plaia" or your Microsoft Account cannot be seen in Users folder, create a new account (named Dean Plaia) and remove the account of Austin Johnson.

  • Hello,

    Wherever you used that password, it's now compromised.

    I'd change it ASAP.

  • I agree with Just Karl. Also run antivirus software.

    Is it your work computer? If yes, notify your IT Admin immediately.
