    I just bought a PC and activated the auto-update on
    WinXP, and after the first update installed, my file
    system is all destroyed. Instead of getting proper files
    listed, their names are replaced by numbers and letters,
    and when I open them, the next folder is called SP2, and
    then the next is UPDATE, and then there is an executable
    UPDATE file. When I first boot up, only 2 of these
    appear, but slowly as it stays on longer, more folders
    change to the random length number and only include the
    SP2 and UPDATE folders. Sould I try uninstalling? I am
    not sure what the auto update was, I wish I had been
    paying attention.
