I found some files in almost every folder on my PC I deleted some of them and on re-boot it came up with a msg

The partition table MBR is corrupt. I am not sure what to do.

 I could access the internet at first but it wouldn't display the full page, I have now lost all connection I have also lost my IP address THE LAN CONNECTION) keeps coming up with the message "windows could not finish repairing the problem Renewing your IP address. On doing this its assigned an automatic private address with a different ip address, I can't remember what mine was either...
The 1394 connection status?? Net adapter says TCP/IP is not enabled for this connection cannot proceed.

I did move a few pictures and delete a couple of the hpothb07 and did used clean up, this is when I had problems, I have a hJT log but cant access the internet, although the pc is loading ok

I have temp files from yesterday that I can't have put in, and a new folder has appered from no where this is -

This is not really a malware problem.Its a corrupted system.I suggest to consult the guys in the Windows Operating forum.

In the mean time see if this helps.
