Questions about Windows 8.1 Pro

I thought I was hacked, but I ran all the programs at Major Geek's Malware help forum and he says no. Is it normal for all the programs I have installed, to be in C:/urers/all users?
I also have another Windows 8.1 Pro computer on my network that I used Diskpart to "Clean" and then found 3 partitions on, used Diskpart again to clean the first partition and then it said there were no more left.
I burned a Linux Mint CD and tried to install it, but when it booted up, it wanted to install Windows 8.
Then I used a Ubuntu CD I burned years ago and when it booted up it was Avira rescue.
I have to say that I am a bit confused.

In response to your first question: Yes it's common for at least Some programs to be listed in "All Users".
It's that way on my PC too.

I never use 'Diskpart' , nor would I, so I can't comment on that. Nor do I ever use Linux or Ubuntu, so can't help you there either.
Sorry!

Thanks for the reply. I'm ok with the all Users now.
I still don't understand why a disk I had just burned with only one thing on it would ask to install something else, but macht nichts.

"macht nichts"? Also written as "Mox Nix"
I've not heard that expression since I left Germany in 1964. Brings back memories.
Good Luck,

As to your question, I'm a hands on type of Computer Tech, and I would have to be there and experience your situation to be able to offer any explanation, or resolution.
An old saying that I've always liked, "to really foul things up, you need a computer."
I think that goes back to before the PC. Every once in a while, a computer will do something that's not in any book, and is beyond the comprehension, of the programmers, that programmed it. I own such a computer. It's a big mistake, to ever think I fully understand it, even though I built it and have run it, and repaired it, when required, for about seven years now.
Sometimes I think it's affected by the phases of the moon, and other times I just think it has a Poltergeist. lol

Good Luck Mate!
