    Why are there multiple Adobe folders in Roaming folder?




      Since installing After Effects CS6 on my computer it keeps making these weird extra Adobe folders in the C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming folder.

      Obviously they cannot all be named Adobe, so they have alternating first characters.


      Right now they are called:

















      As you can see the top folder is the only one that is actually called Adobe. This folder contains all my usual Adobe stuff. All the other folders contain just a folder called After Effects, and in this folder there is again just 1 folder called 11.0, and after opening that one I see an AfterFX11.ini file. It looks like a normal ini file to me. I deleted all these extra folders more than once, but they keep reappearing over time.


      QUESTION: why does AE make these folders and how can I get rid of them?


      Thanks for helping out!
