using Snow leopard 10.6.7...This has NEVER been a problem..until yesterday...I didn't touch ANYTHING and yet again my OSX is acting glitchy


Heres my problem


I download stuff, it says IT GOES TO THE DOWNLOAD FOLDER...but in reality, its going somewhere else...Like for instance if i torrent stuff, bit torrent preferecnes are going to downloads folder but really they go to the bit torrent folder which i cant find unless i Apple F it. ( lol )... now im downloading songs off youtube and it says its going to the downloads folder and in reality they arnt..Last night I saw them in a weird folder and now today I can't locate any of the songs...What the **** is going on with my OSX? Why is it acting all glitchy now?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
