soffit, facia, gutter leak?

Hello everyone! I am trying to figure out the problem I am having with the gutter area of this house. New soffit, facia and gutters were installed a few years ago but continuious leaks are happening. First of all the seams in the gutters leak. Next, the water seems like it is leaking also behind the gutters or through the soffit?? There is drip edge up also. Could this be from the gutters being full or is there more to it? We have minimal erosion on the ground and am starting to see mold entering the house from the ground up. The slope of the sidewalk also leans towards the house. Can anyone help me determine what the problem might be and a clear way to fix it?

I believe pretty much everyones first response will be 'photos',
pics of the gutter, facia/over hangs, down spouts and ground area.

Would be blindly guessing with out pics.

if the seams are leaking in the gutters, yes, they could be full if never cleaned and could certainly cause the problems there. other than that to say, i agree with the fox... we need pics! =o)
