Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM --> RTM clean install

Hi Princessrozi & welcome to the forums

If you can upload a screenshot that would be great.
This happens in what programs?
What type of files?
What file locations?
When did this start to happen, recently or always?

First step would be virus scan, and run Malware Bytes antimalware too.
