Windows 7: Is this many netuser.dat files normal ?

Is this many netuser.dat files normal ?

I have the netuser.dat files in the attached jpg....is this normal.

There has only been one user (me) on this PC...but there are other PC's in the home that are networked ?

Is this where the multiple netuser files are coming (came) from ?

Also noticed that most are from 2011...only a few from the last week or so ?

Any comments on these files will be appreciated...are the old ones (2011) deletable...and/or will they just rebuild themselves ?

Thanks...TRinAz

I would leave them alone. Just to make sure, please run a Malwarebytes Antimalware scan: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

They are registry profile files. You can delete them, but when you do, some will be in use. You will get a dialog, just skip those, do not force delete them. the current, in use ones are all you need. They don't hurt anything, and can be left alone
