Duplicate Documents folders created in Vista

Hi All,
In Vista, I'm having the following issue. Whenever I click "Documents" under start, it directs me to a new folder, such as:

And it keeps creating sub-sub-sub folders constantly.

I have tried setting the default path, but it tells my the specified path is invalid?

Please help.

Your system has been infected with a malicious virus. Please install a good virus removal tool and run a complete scan on your system. My recommendation is Eset Nod32 Antivirus. If you already have an active anti virus software installed on your system, please update it and scan your system thoroughly for any viruses. This would certainly help fix the issue you are facing. If this does not resolve the issue you might have to backup the your data and reinstall the OS..

I ran spybot, malware bytes, AVG Antivirus, microsoft security essentials and it does nothing. I've also run CCleaner.
I would recommand "Kaspersky Antivirus" , Download (trial version) , UPdate and SCAN.

I am sure kaspersky will overcome your problem.

As I had mentioned earlier, a virus has infected your system. You can download a trial version of Eset from


Eset is far better than most antivirus programs available in the market today. Please install it and run a strict custom scan allowing to scan for protential harmful programs as well. I'm certain Eset will find the root cause and set it right.
