Windows 7: Files dumping into My Documents

Files dumping into My Documents

Hey guys/gals. I hope this is the most appropriate place for this thread, (not sure what category my problem fits into.)

So I keep ISO's, PDF's, readme's, these kind of things in My Documents. The other day, I open it up, and its 1200 or so files and applications, strew about. When I get to looking, I notice that its the contents of the hundreds of folders I've stored here, minus the actual folders. BINS, CONFIGS, ISO, EVERYWHERE! I'm completely bewildered. It also will not let me make a folder here now. I then go to Users>HH6(my user name)>MY Doc> and here are said folders that are missing. Catch is, they are empty. Also, I'm getting CONFIG, and .txt labeled Warning, being created in My document folder now. They are being generated by my, Company of Heroes application.

Does anyone know what in the world this is?

Can you post a screen shot of the folder(s) in question? it would help us get a better idea of what you are referring to. To do a screen shot; press ctrl plus print screen and that will paste a copy of the image on screen to the clipboard. Then, open paint and open the file of the screen shot and upload it to the site.
