It's time for me to get a new Mac!

I took advice from someone on another thread of my regarding Fidner not being persistent when I restart my MBP.

I ended up deleting the plist files for Finder and it didn't help.

What it also apepars to have done is introduce a new issue...

When I do command + N to open a new Finder window, the new window says "All My Files" and I see all fo these new files appearing in the FInder window and it keeps scroling down. I have no clue what is being shown to me.

I am used to when I open a new Finder window, it just shows me My Computer or maybe it starts off in whatever directory I was in (e.g. Music).

What is going on here?

You can change the default under Finder Preferences. Click on Finder in the Menu bar and click on Preferences (or hold CMD key and press comma key).

Maybe, but not for any reason related to the rest of your post...

Yes related to my post...

Ever since I upgraded to El Capitan, I have been getting all of these weird behaviors. I also think the heat has screwed up my Mac, because weird things happen to it like this out of no where.

First part: software related, I suspect. Not a hardware issue.
Second part: New info (not in your first post). If you describe other "weird things" maybe someone can help you diagnose the problem.
