We had a computer Windows 8 infected with malicious data.  We ran comodo antivirus, spybot S&D, malware, etc. and cleaned it up.

At bootup, the %homepath% changed to temp.username.001 and randomly next boot up to .002 and so on.  Yet the username at top is the same exact as when first purchased.  It's like the path is always created and the user has to go to the original user\user-name to access the files.

whats going on?
