WFV folders in WINNT folder

By BarryVG ·
My server has many WFV folders, each containing what appears to be one ppmusset.dll file and 32 *.sty files of which these appear to be a music types like ragtime.sty, rag.sty, rock1.sty, and rock3.sty. What would cause the server to be storing these folders? Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Check Veritas Backup Exec
When performing a virus scan with Backup Exec for Windows NT and Windows 2000, \<wfv> directories are created in the system directory

After searching through 23 pages of Google links referring to the West German Football Association (WFV), I came across the following link:

http://security-archive.merton.ox.ac.uk/nt-security-199907/0054.html

(remove any embedded spaces in theURL)

The link suggest the folders are a result of Anti-Virus Software activity (Dr Solomon).

Hope this helps.

Thanks much. I too came across all the Deutche football links and thought I'd obtained a wrong search. Now to determine if these are needed and how to remove safely.
