Have a ton of different problems going on.

System is Windows XP Professional

My computer had restarted and basically my whole desktop was gone. My folders are having issues finding the actual files.

The My Documents folders have reset to /name.000/My Documents

I get a ton of redirects on the internet but still am able to browse.

Also my HD seems to continually go to Zero space. I've deleted a ton of files and know I cleared up over a couple gigs, and now its back to zero again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,you have major malware..

We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
