    That's most likely not a virus. That's what happens when you double click a folder holding the ALT key.

    recently i saw one virus effected system

    ...is this your system or someone elses?

    how to overcome this problem?????

    If you're lucky, one of your ALT keys is just stuck. Try giving them a few good firm taps. If that doesn't work, try another keyboard.

    Is it still doing that after the virus was removed?

      You don't need to press it. They just stick sometimes.

      Press both of them a couple of times and see if that makes it stop.

      Also, try a different keyboard like I mentioned before.
