    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:

      Adobe

      ֢Adobe

      ֙Adobe

      ֜Adobe

      ֝Adobe

      ֞Adobe

      ֟Adobe

      ֠Adobe

      ֡Adobe

      ֣Adobe

      ֤Adobe

      ֥Adobe

      ֫Adobe

      ׄAdobe

      ׇAdobe

       

      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!
