    Additional .exe folders appearing with names of other folders

    I have a Windows XP PC experiencing some issue with the folders. Whenever I create a folder, another folder of the same name appears, but in the .exe format. When I double click it, nothing happens. But it appears in the task bar. The same goes for the folders in the USB drives I connect to the PC. I tried deleting the .exe folders but they appear again. Is there any way to deal with this problem for good?
