You can try using a program like CCleaner to get rid of old keys and programs and see if that works.  Get it here.

If not you might have a malware issue, to be sure do the following:

  •     Go to the malware forum on our site.  You do this by first going here, to read how to post and where, what and when.
  •     Then follow the post link to post to our virus forum.
  •     Please wait, do not do anything to your computer unless a forum, Malware expert, or Moderator tells you too.
  •     They will make sure your computer has no virus, malware on it, and help you secure your computer.
  •     Only work with one person at a time, DO NOT go to different sites and get help there too.

Good luck and please stick with the antivirus experts, they help a lot of people, and it can take a few days to get to you, but they are as good as it gets.

I am wondering if those are valid addresses?

 

I don't think a file or folder name needs a semicolon after the drive letter?

 

AFAIK file or folder names cannot contain blank spaces?

 

Or am I misunderstanding something here?

With long file names you can have folder names with spaces.  Having spaces in folder and file names can make them more difficult to work with.

 

If CCleaner doesn't fix the problem, you might try running running a Check Disk on the drive.  Right click the drive in an Explorer window, switch to the Tools tab and press the Check now button.  You can run it with the defaults first, if that doesn't fix your issue you might try running it again with the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors option checked.
