"iyizopxdbt" is unGoogleable.

I can only assume this is a piece of malware that generates random filenames and folders.

Please go here to the Malware forum to get your computer checked out:

Windows errors related to smss.exe ?

smss.exe is a process which is a part of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. It is called the Session Manager Subsystem and is responsible for handling sessions on your system. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Note: smss.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

Determining whether smss.exe is a virus or a legitimate Windows process depends on the directory location it executes or runs from

C:\WINDOWS\system32\smss

If it is anywhere but at the above it could well be a Trojan, if you can still get into windows do as Neil recommends
