File Deletion and Rearange

I noticed something yesterday. In my music file there were files deleted completely and others were reorganized and mixed up. I didn't do it and no one else uses this computer. Immediately went on red alert and done scans with 3 different security programs and nothing but cookies. other files not effected. Is it a windows 7 thing or was I hacked?

Welcome

An answer of this nature has to be a guess. You know to what use you put your computer, do you think that you could have been hacked? I know, in my case, the answer would be no.

If you feel that you could not be hacked. I would think that the problem was caused by another program on your computer.
