hi guys,

i just bought an hp windows xp pc for myself and happen to notice some strange behavior. whenever i create a folder, for example a new folder in my documents, the same folder (with folder icon but empty contents) is created inside that folder. when i click on it, it redirects to the my documents folder. its functions like a shortcut. when i delete it, it says deleting new folder.exe. so now i figured its some sort of application pretending to be a folder. after deleting it and when i restart my computer the folder is there again. to me its annoying and seems its behavior is like a virus. i am wondering if this is related to the missing folder options problem that i am encountering just the same. i hope that some of you have encountered this same problem and help me resolve it. thanks guys. i'll be waiting for yor reply.

Hey if its a new comp reformat could be a problem with windows registery or it could be infected with a virus or spyware if that is not an option then use ewido to do a scan see if you have any spyware if not there have been a few more problems like this search this forum to see how they were solved.

thanks to your reply. i did a lot of research and got info that my pc was infected of rontokbro virus. i have printed few info and started fixing them. i have cleaned the virus and all i need to do now is do the registry since the virus has changed it. i'm checking out some tools to do this. thanks for your reply though. i appreciate it.
