Re: Directory name changed by Virus
Try to login safe mode by restarting pc and holding down the f8 key as soon as the power comes on ..way before the windows screens appears and then select safe mode without network. Once in safe mode run your virus scan. Then go to start>run> type in cmd and press ok> then type chkdsk /f
please note a space between the k and slash (/)
press enter and then press then press the Y button and restart again once virus scan is done and see if that helps.

Try downloading malwarebytes its the best antispyware/spyware removal tool around right now and just use for trial period for now. http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Should help remove a fair bit. Also make sure your antivirus has the latest updates and run it. If its still around after that let me know. Theres also a tool called hijackthis which you can run it can help clean up a fair bit. If all else fails try combofix its very powerful and I only recommend if the others are unsuccessful as it can make some major changes. I have never had a problem with it personally but heard some people have.
