You can use any computer to go here

http://www.allbootdisks.com

and make a win98SE boot disk, use it to boot up your system, you may need to change the boot order in BIOS, then you can use it to rename the folder. After the system boots up to the prompt, type help and hit the enter key, it will tell you how to do different things. If you need any clarification let us know.

If you personally didn't rename those files then I can almost assure that it was a virus. Please go here: http://www.geekstogo...o_Here-f37.html and post a HiJackThis log. If you have never used HiJackThis then take a look here: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html
