Windows 10 Weird behavior

Hello Experts,

I am using Windows 10 LTSB 64bit. I made some customizations to the Start menu and removed several unnecessary folders. Every time the system does a Windows update, an empty folder named "Windows Administrative Tools" shows up randomly on the Desktop. I delete it and do another update and it comes back. It's driving me crazy. Any thoughts on this?

Did you remove Windows Administrative Tools from the start menu?  I would have thought that the update would just recreate it there, but it may put it on the desktop if it doesn't exist in the normal place.

Speculating here, Windows Update changed something that relates to one of the items in the program group, so it ensures that the icon exists.  I don't know why it didn't just recreate the program group in the Start Menu (as opposed to your Desktop).

I'd recreate the program group in the Start Menu and leave it alone.  Otherwise, put up with having it appearing on your Desktop.

Get Autoruns from Microsoft SysInternals and run it. See if there is a duplicate entry for the above.

Windows Administrative tools is a legitimate Windows Menu (7, 8 and 10) .
