    i think i've got 3 viruses, but the software symantec, doesn't reconize and
    delete them.
    1.- is a carpet at C: named MSO Cache and RECYCLER, both can't be seen or
    deleted. With these viruses i can't open the hard disk by clicking it, i need
    to open it from the bar.
    2.- is at a USB memory named RECYCLER, and has like an extension or
    something like that, named Desktop.ini. It makes the icon look like carpet,
    not like a USB icon

    this carpets can't be seen, they are like a hiden file, the software check
    them withtout doing anithing wth them.

    hope, you can help me

    Nope.
    These are normal, hidden, folders.
    MSO Cache is the cache of installer files for the MS Office suite.
    Recycler is the Recycle Bin.

    Desktop.ini is interpreted by Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) to set HOW a particular
    folder is to be displayed by the Windows Explorer GUI.
