Virus changes my folder to exe

New folder.exe

I have this problem with my usb, it has a virus.  The virus tends to change all my folder into .exe.  Unlike the previous virus I have it doesn’t hide my files it just change my folder to the .exe extension.  I tried to clean it by avg but to no success. AVG does not even recognize it as a virus.

I also remember it made an exe file in my windows/system32 . The file is xp-***.exe, can’t remember the exact name. After a long search in the net about this xp-***.exe and I can’t find anything about it, I decided to download Avast antivirus.

Luckily for me Avast detected and cleaned the virus.
