Folder.exe virus [duplicate]

Windows XP system is affected by a folder.exe virus. It is creating an exe file with the name of the folder and getting deleted while we try deleting, but again generates the same file after some. Can we solve it permanently.

"While Evan is right from an ideal perspective, pragmatism sometimes demands that you get rid of the virus. Have you simply tried running an up-to-date antivirus program (I can't tell one way or the other from the original post)? Looking on the internet, the ""folder.exe"" virus came out sometime in 2007, which means most (all?) antivirus programs should be able to find and remove it. Try downloading and running Microsoft Security Essentials (which is free) and see if it takes care of removing it:
