Thanks to everyone for your input.
Mostly for your patience.
I will separate the laptops from each other and from my home internet. I will reload both of them and start fresh.God bless.Amigo

No problem, you're welcome.

I think that would explain the pop up. I think the test for it appearing requires the default folders to be in their default locations with their right names in the right language.  It doesn't explain the pop up being in foriegn language, but as that has all been overwritten now, I guess we are stuck with not knowing.

Regarding the note that appeared on the newer laptop
Really don't know what this is.  Never seen anything of this nature and I can't think what you mean.
I can't think of a scenario in which one independent system would report it's status to another independent system.

If the older laptop was completely disconnected from any network i.e. no ethernet cable plugged in, not joined to any wifi network, no bluetooth peering etc then it is very difficult to see how they could interact with each other in any case.

If you can describe the note that appeared on the newer laptop or better recall the wording it might ring some bells but I'm struggling.

That seemed strange, as the Document Folder was still in place. I have added additional folders that moved the Document Folder.

When I installed 5.6 on the older laptop, it wasn't connected to the internet. The newer one was connected to the internet. That note appeared on the screen of the newer laptop.  So it would seem, the two laptops were communicating without the internet?

Thank you for hanging in there with me.

The data in your previous post (I think from the Aspire E15 laptop which at the time was running 5.8 with the foreign language pop up) suggests that the usual 'Documents' folder was not there and I think this would trigger the pop up.

Was there any legitimate reason the Documents folder could not be found on this system?

If I understand correctly, you then installed 5.6 on the Aspire E15 system which will have over written the 5.8 data.
This will now be assumed to be a 'clean' machine.  At some point you will need to connect it to the Internet to get it updated.

Having installed 5.6 on the older E15, you then noticed something unusual on the newer Aspire 3 and are asking about this.
Can you tell us a bit more ?

Ran the code.. here's the response
#This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
#If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're#interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run.#Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped#homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an#absolute path.

That completes the download.

The safety suggestions you gave are pretty much standard procedure of me. But it doesn't mean I haven't slipped up.
I will start the removal and reinstalling of the programs.
Again, thanks for the help.Amigo
Wait.... I'm confused even more. I reinstalled 5.6 on the old laptop, an Acer Aspire E15. I didn't connect to the internet. I turned to my other laptop an Acer Aspire 3, and there's a note saying Linux Lite 5.6 has been installed. How did that get there? Anything to do with the Enable Networking?I don't want them connected. I'm getting too old for this.......
