Hi Annabanana. Welcome to GTG. <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

If your system drive (usually C is formatted with the FAT32 file system, simply create a bootable floppy, boot from it, and delete the directory from the command prompt.

If your system drive is formatted with the NTFS file system, download Bart's PE builder from http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ in order to create a pre installed environment cd image. Burn that image and boot using the CD, use then the utilities inside the PE in order to delete this folder.
