New folder inside every folder-Virus problem?

  rags999 10:19 31 Dec 2006

I run a PC with no antivirus installed recently. Now a new folder sits inside every folder in the computer with the same name of the original folder(for e.g- another my documents inside the folder my documents) or named "Data". It doesnt let me run any antivirus from a CD or internet by shutting the computer down.The computer doesnt boot in safe mode. i think it is a virus.please help me sort it out.
