I have been trying to install some add-in's and as I was searching for the correct location, I came across a directory under:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020

that seems to be related to PhotoshopPrefsManager.exe

 

The directory has a name that is one single Unicode character, which the Unicode character finder tells me is:

U+534D : CJK UNIFIED IDEOGRAPH-534D

I am attaching a screenshot of Windows Explorer's view of the character.

 

Underneath this directory is another "Adobe" directory that was a file called:

PhotoshopPrefsManager-20200122-220640.log

which I have also attached.

 

The single directory name appears to be a hate symbol (which I cannot name in the message body or this website will reject my post). Was this directory created by Adobe, or the PhotoshopPrefsManager.exe?

Trivia: the ancient Buddhist symbol faces counter-clockwise to the left, while the "opposite" symbol used by those who shall go nameless in this forum was reversed and faces clockwise to the right.

I've never seen such a directory name here.

You might want to check for viruses and malware. What is the download in your second attachment?
