    How to get my account back ?

    My normal account of the admin group got deleted (don't ask how) while I was trying to make it sign in without password and I was left with only primary account. I made a new one but of course now I don't have everything set as before and would have to do everything again to have it as before.

    Can't cleanup backup update files.

    They do not show in Disk cleanup at all and there must be several GB of them. Since everything is working good, without any problems related to updates I figured I should delete some parasitic files from the system. If nothing at least system/disk backup file will be smaller.
