Was downloading some files, then one of them wound up in the IE low risk phishing file, accidently clicked a banner ad for "Facemoods", and now whenever I click to open the 'Documents' it reads: "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem." I ran a scan with AVG, came up with the file that I downloaded, said it was moved to virus vault. Scanning with mbam now... I can go anywhere else with Explorer except 'Documents'

Running Vista SP 1.
