A few months ago I used Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to scan my computer after my Steam account was hacked. It found a backdoor.bot in the C:\System Volume Information. I cannot be exact because when I tried opening it this morning, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware it gives me a run time error.

Just last night I scanned again and found some type of trojan, two of them to be exact. So I quarantined those. The reason I'm telling you all this is to see if it has anything to do with what just happened when I booted up. Right when I turned on the computer and I could see the desktop it said that My Documents cannot be found (whether it got its named changed, etc.). Also my AVG Anti-Virus (Free Edition), was turned off for some reason.

So, can anyone help me with removing all these problems I'm having with viruses, malware, and anything else it may be.
