comment What determines the speed of small multiple file copies on a hard drive?
@kirill2485 It has overhead. Look at some benchmarks; random small block reads and writes are way slower than sequential. Filesystem adds its own overhead too, which becomes apparent when moving lots of small files.

This question should be edited. Just like @fixer1234 said, that kind of behavior is expected and most definitely is not because of a virus. Implying there is a virus without a way to remove it will confuse less tech-savvy people troubleshooting their own computers via Google.
