    Redundant folders are being created in Windows 8

    When I create a new folder in Windows 8 System, it creates other duplicate folder in the same drive. If i delete one folder, it deletes that duplicate folder. I scanned the System to remove the virus if any and tried to create a new folder, but could not solve the problem I am facing with. What might be the problem? Please, help me in solving the problem.

    Open Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr).

    If prompted, select the Windows drive, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
    NOTE: You will not see this window unless you have more than one drive or partition on your computer with a drive letter.

    Click/tap on the Clean up system files button. (see screenshot below)

    If prompted by UAC, then click/tap on Yes.

    Repeat step 2 above.

    6. Click/tap on the Previous Windows installation(s) box to check it, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

    Click/tap on Delete Files. (see screenshot below)

    When Disk Cleanup finishes, the C:\Windows.old folder will be deleted.
