    HI, first of all, I found out that my home computer was infected by the lovelorn worm. Plan to clean that tonight.

    Secondly, I found copies of 2 files named "folder" and "desktop" in almost all folders. The files where identical so I suspect that there is a virus that's propagating this. Is my hunch correct? Is this related to the lovelorn virus or is it another kind? What should I do?

    Thanks!!!

    Symantec site you may want to review. I don't see anything about the file replication you are experiencing but the site may be helpful to you.
