Hi there.
If anything the only thing that comes with the OS is windows defender and windows firewall (unless you got the machine with the OS preinstalled)
I would recommend AVG 8.5 Free as its just about the best antivirus software out there and you need antivirus software to protect the system from attacks and threats.

Get AVG 8.5 here >>>>>>

Folder automatically becomes application why, can you tell a way to make it back


Hello,
Scan your computer with an anti-virus. It's a virus infection. If you have no anti-virus in your computer then install a free AVG anti-virus. However, it's not an assurance that the virus will get removed. The last resort is to reinstall the operating system and install a premium anti-virus. Protection is better than cure.
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps!

How delete computar vairous


You need to have a reliable anti-virus software installed and run a scan then tell the software to remove the virus. If you do not have an anti-virus program installed you can find an open source anti-virus program at www.clamwin.com. This is a very good and free anti-virus program. Download it, install it, it will automatically update its virus database, then open it, go to the options and click on the option to "remove" malware THEN run the scan and it will clean your computer.

Virus


Don't reformat it just yet. Tell us what OS you are using, and I can try to help.
I will assume you are using WIndows XP or Vista - what you can do, assuming you have kept your PC up-to-date, is try to run the inbuilt Microsoft anti-malware program.
Click Start, Run, type MRT and press Enter or click OK.
You should get the February 2009 version of the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Do a quick scan and see what comes up. If anything is found, reboot and repeat the process doing a full scan (can take several hours).
That should fix and remove the most common virus infections. Let me know how you get on.

If you still need to reformat, you need to use the Dell recovery CDs that came with your laptop. These were a blue recovery/drivers CD and a purple CD for Windows XP sp1 or a green CD for Windows XP sp2. Not sure about other versions of Windows. There is no magic button to reformat with Dell laptops.

Virus problem


I would recommend installing an anti-virus program, you can get a 30 day trial of Kaspersky (leading A/V company) from HERE.

Download and install this. Once installed you can do a scan and fix any virus issues you have, and if it fixes your computer it may be worth while investing in an Anti Virus program for your computer.
