I don’t know what the problem is, and I can only make guesses about how to solve it, but in terms of detective work, I think we should start here: C:\Users\Default User.DESKTOP-202NE4N\AppData\Local\SquirrelTemp. Perhaps, if the temporary build files weren’t deleted when you installed Discord, your install of Atom might have picked up on those. You should check if that file exists and delete it if so, then try running the installer again.
