    Hi,


    I've noticed a few days ago some strange things happening on my dell Inspiron laptop. I have all these files moving by themselves everywhere on my computer and even on my portable drives... "Desktop.ini" and "thumbs.db" are duplicating themselves almost everywhere and several times ; library "music, video, my documents".Also in "my documents" now I get all these shortcuts for "my videos" and "my music" with access denied when clicked on... Some words and One notes documents have been moved around too in videos, music, quite a mess!...


    I've ran several scans "Malwarebytes, windows defender, Microsoft essentials and McFee" but none of them could find any type of malware of my laptop.


    Does anybody know what the issue is with my computer and how to fix that?


    Thanks and have a nice day,


    Serge
