you need to find this file and delete it.

svichossst.exe

I have not tried this and it is just what I have herd through the google vine.

Although this is not a programming question the thought of a herd of wild folders scares me.

You may find this helpful. It describes how to remove the virus. http://www.usbvirus.com/new-folder-virus/remove-new-folder-exe-virus.html

I have not tried this as I have never had this virus. Good luck.

You should look at some of the Bootable stand alone Virus scanners. I use Kapersky and BitDefenders versions.

There's a good review Here that contains links to download the various Programs.
