Can someone help me to understand this? I get this name change on some of my desktop folders -

A phone # and an AOL email address is the name of the folder change - spelled exactly its written here ---> ("610-269-8037 or [email protected] (6)") - This is the 6th out of six times it happened in the past couple of months, but I only noticed it today.

I called the 610 phone number (with my caller ID blocked) and a woman answered - I explained it and she got her husband and he had no idea about it. They were legit. They lived in a town about 20 miles from me.

I did not write to the aol address...............I did SuperAntiSpyware and there wasn't much there. 19 adware harmless - deleted.

I am doing a scans now - Malwarebytes is in progress (23 so far after a 1/2 hour -

Any help out there ? Like what does it mean when a normal desktop folder name is changed like that out of the blue?
thank you...........
