Default default directory for skills changed?

Tried searching but could not find anything.

My problem is that after the update (Embark Beach) whenever I try to load a skill template the game tries to find it in a location that does not exist.
Location it is pointed at is C:/ Philips/SA52xx Device Manager/Documents/Guild Wars/...

This folder did not exist until I logged in today and got the update.
Now everything I do goes to this folder, skills, screenshots, everything.

I installed CCleaner today (after the update) and it saves its backup files in that documents folder also.

Anyone have any clue what would cause this?
Any way I can change the location that GW is looking at to get templates?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Update with additional info: If I delete that documents folder then start GW it creates the folder again.

What version of Windows are you using? If it's Vista or 7, it's normal for this stuff to be in the Documents folder - maybe you just never noticed it before.
The path "Philips\Sa52xx\" should be based upon the ID of the person logged in (but it looks kinda sketchy). If it's not, check the User section of Control Panel to see if there is such a user, and go from there.

I Have Vista.
Figured out the problem, somehow the link to the documents folder got redirected to the Phillips/SA52xx folder. I think this happened when I installed paw.ned2 due to my lack of paying attention. All fixed up now though.

I appreciated your response Quaker.
