    htt files are hypertext template files, it is not a virus, do a search for them on your machine - i have 23 .htt files

    folder.htt is very important file in explorer environment.. windows' explorer reads folder.htt to show you a explorer window. For eg: If you customize a folder and place a picture in folder's background... the information will be stored in the related folder.htt
    One day you will ask what more important to you..

    and You will leave me with even knowing
    that

    yup ... actually, i have check this folder by search. you see, even there's 2 type of folder.htt ...
    1 - folder.htt
    2 - FOLDER.HTT : this folder could be created by virus.

    and then, i have checked some of CERTAIN FOLDER, there's only a filename called FOLDER.HTT.

    install and run a decent virus scanner
    still not convinced - delete all files and folders you believe are infected.
    still not convinced Format C:

    there is no real evidence that this a virus, does your machine show any symptoms of a virus, go to mcaffee online - you can do an online virus check of your machine

    sorry to burst your bubble dude but there's no such thing as an html virus.

    If you have windows 2000/xp then run task manager and see what processes are running, you might be able to find suspicious files that way.
    If you have 9x then run the program inside the zip i've included (it's a 9x version of xp task manager) to use it unzip it, launch the program, click find window, then click process viewer.
