Is my PC hacked (files mysteriously moved)

Dell Studio laptop with intel core 2 duo...

Specs: Win7 64bit, Intel C2D/4gig
I have just recently noticed that some music and photos of mine have been moved to different locations(drives and folders). Now I am a fanatic about keeping my files organized and backed up and knowing where they are. I also keep my systems clean and virus\spyware clean by running my antispyware programs 2-3 times each week. I run AVG antivirus and have been using it for 8 years and have had approx. 3-4 viruses in that time. My wireless is secured with WPA\PSK mode\TKIP encryption and a fairly strong password which I change monthly (hmm...maybe I shouldn't be broadcasting my security settings?). All of my drives are shared within my network also. Is it possible to check the Event log to see if my system has been tampered with? Help. All replies and opinions are greatly appreciated and respected.

I forgot to mention that all 'remote access' settings have been disabled.

Why would a hacker take the time to bypass your security, just to move your music & photos folders? My guess is either someone else in your household did it or you did it yourself & forgot that you did.

Thanks for the reply. Don't know why anyone would do something as trivial as this. I understand that this is something minor. But....I am the only one that gets on my pc 100% of the time and like I said, I am fanatical about keeping my files organized in the folders and drives that I designate and then backups of those also. Hey, the moving of certain files to folders that I have designated and the deletion of a large block of my Beatles music causes me to come here to the gurus and ask if the steps that I have taken are strong enough to keep 'outsiders' out of my network.
