Windows 7 Created new user account

A few days ago I noticed a new user account appear it's called slxfqtchcmf
I logged in as Admin and deleted user - it comes back every time I restart machine

I've run anti-virus ESET found nothing, also run Malwarebytes and Windows defender again nothing found.

What is this mystery new user account and how do I get rid of it
