|It sounds like you have a virus.. a bad one. |
I would download Spybot - Search and Destroy and have it scan your entire system for threats. And once its found everything, you should be good to go from there.
This program will scan your entire system and remove the threats, but it won't fix the result of the problem. To do that, go into Windows Explorer (right click the start button). Navigate to your profile folders (My Documents, Favorites, etc).. all of these folders are most likely dimmed. Right click on each one and scroll down to properties and make sure they are unhidden.. do this for all of them that are there.
Afterwards, restart your computer and you should be fine.
If you have any issues, just come back and let us know!
