I was not at home when this started so I do not have a good history. By the time I arrived home from work, all desktop icons were gone, Windows was not able to find my background photos. Looking through my system, all documents, photos and videos have been moved from our User folders to Public Folders.

We have run MBAM, Avira, Stinger and CC Cleaner - all find nothing. There may have been some issues initially, but I just can't stop my husband from "trying" stuff before I get home. I do not have, nor did I see any of the logs. Feels more like a "hack" but I'm afraid it's just malware designed to look like a hack - cause really - we're boring, there's 'nothing to see here'.

I want to move my files, but also don't really want to do anything until the real issue can be resolved.

I searched and could not find a similar problem - googled it as well and all the responses point to user error rather than anything else.

We are running Windows 7 Professional. I can't even open the documents folder at this point, only the photos and videos.......

This is the first time I have run into this and I'm stumped...
