NewFloder.exe is an executable file, judging by the extension - don't open it!

What do you mean by "main folder" - C:\Windows ?
The main drive like C:\ ; D:\ ; E:\ (whatever your disk drive letters are...) ?
–ěr lots of folders that are main for each program etc. ?

We will need more information, but it sure does sound like malware...

Well, Tabeer, it does sound like a malicuous program caused this.

First, do you have an anti-malware program? If you do - run a full scan of your PC.
If you don't - get such a program and scan. In any case, you need such a program at all times, so malware doesn't run wild.

Second, it seems that this malware might have messed up with registry entries
and that would explain why those files are created and keep getting back.

Third, if the anti-malware scan doesn't fix your problem, or you are somehow prevented from downloading such - write back.
I will try to guide you to what you should do next.

You could also go to your Task Manager and see if you have some process running like: "newfolder.exe".

@Tabeer, try with another anti-malware program, if MSE is not helping you. And 3-4 days sounds like a lot, I guess this malware is taking some of your computer memory.

Also, as dealing with the registry can get messy, try installing a Registry cleaner also, to see if it can fix the issue.

Did you search for a newfolder.exe process or service? If you haven't - search your PC for that and try to disable and delete it.

Best Regards,
Execute

Tabeer, I can see that you keep having troubles with NewFloder. In case this is a persistent threat you should install an external firewall and configure it to block any files, named "NewFloder.exe".

Furthermore try to run a scan with a registry clean up tool as well as anti-malware scan.

In this reply, I have uploaded link to a tool with which you can scan your computer and provide us with more information so we can conclude what is the issue exactly.


Here are the instructions for you:


Step1: Download FarBar by clicking on the MajorGeeks web link below:

DOWNLOAD FarBar Recovery Scan Tool (http://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/getmirror/farbar_recovery_scan_tool,1.html)

Step 2: Open the FRST executable.

Step 3: Tick "Addition.txt" on the bottom right of FarBar`s Window.


Step 4: Click on the "Scan" button to scan your PC.

Step 5:  After the scan has finished "FRST.txt" and "Addition.txt" will be saved on the same place where you downloaded FarBar.

Step 6: Upload the .txt files in your reply. We will make sure they are private so that we can help you discretely.

In conclusion you may have malware on your computer and you need to either wipe your Hard Drive and reinstall Windows or run a scan in "Safe Mode with Networking". Running a boot scan for rootkits is also advisable.

Best Regards,
Never

Hello Tabeer, I believe you misunderstood me. After you scan you PC with FarBar you should upload the files as attachments to your reply in this topic so that we may see where the issue might be and help you fix it. Check the steps carefully and follow them.
