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 e-mails, 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.
