How to Remove a Duplicate Folder Virus

The Duplicate, or New Folder virus is a remote access Trojan (RAT) that allows hackers to connect to your computer. Once this is done they can view your files, upload more viruses and spyware to your computer, send emails, delete information and totally disable your PC. The virus creates duplicate new files with icons resembling Windows folder icons--hence the name. Remove this dangerous Trojan immediately to prevent any further damage.
