Some time ago, I had Koofr (a cloud storage) on my laptop. I used it from a downloaded app from their website ( https://koofr.eu/desktop-apps/ ).
A few months ago I quit, deleted my Koofr data folders, and the downloaded app, and everything went fine.
Strangely, last night rebooting my laptop, I found the Koofr icon in my tool bar! More strange I can click it and launch the Koofr app!!!
Searching from dolphin for koofr, there is nothing, no app, no folders, absolutely nothing!
[limo@asus ~]$ yay -Rc koofr [sudo] password for limo: error: target not found: koofr -> exit status 1 [limo@asus ~]$
[limo@asus ~]$ sudo find / -name koofr | grep koofr [sudo] password for limo: find: ‘/tmp/.mount_pcloudVSmUus’: Permission denied /run/user/1000/koofr [limo@asus ~]$
Then I deleted this folder /run/user/1000/koofr
[limo@asus 1000]$ ls at-spi dbus-1 gnupg p11-kit pipewire-0.lock recoll-e49ae25c09bc6cf76c473faf09facf25-index.pid bus dconf KSMserver__0 pipewire-0 pulse systemd [limo@asus 1000]$
Strangely, rebooting it is there again! Both the icon in tool bar that I can click open, and the folder!
What’s going on? Do I have some malware? How an app that was just running from a downloaded file in a folder then deleted came back?
How can I fix this?
Update: I just thought to check autostart apps, and strangely I found it there! (remember my problem is that I totally removed it and it was not showing up for several months, but suddenly last night it is back!)
After removing from Autostart and rebooting, checking /run/user/1000/ it is not there!
How did it come to Autostart! How did it suddenly appear after 4 months!
