Keeping your PC safe from keyloggers

Key Loggers, like the name suggests, are programs that record keystrokes from the computer keyboard and either logs it to the computer or sends it to its maker through a built in e-mail engine. Key logging allows a prospective hacker to gain access to the user name, passwords, and even id numbers entered into sensitive online bank accounts or passwords to remote control programs.

Another manual way of removing the new folder.exe virus

1) From this moment and until the problem is solved do not open any folders or drives (even My Computer folder) with double-click. Open them with right mous click and "Open" context menu item instead. This will prevent Newfolder.exe virus from duplicating itself faster than you remove it.

2) Fill the following processes and delete the appropriate files connected with Newfolder.exe virus (mostly situated in system directories):

* libedit.dll
* newfolder.exe
* shelliddono.dll
* srv0104.ids
* srvidd20.exe

If these files can't be deleted during normal Windows work or recreate themselves, reboot into Safe Mode and repeat deletion. If you do not see all of these files, then they are hiding themselves via core Newfolder.exe virus process. You need special software to kill those hidden files.
