Hi,

I would suggest you to follow the methods mentioned:

 

Method 1:

Run Online Microsoft Safety Scanner

http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

Click above link, “Download” and Run.

Disclaimer: Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss

 

Method 2:

Perform a SFC scan and run the sfc/scannow command.

NOTE: You might be prompted to insert the Windows XP installation disc while performing the scan. Keep the installation disc handy.

If still issue remains same follow method 3.

=======================================
If you are seeing the oprion  "New"  your pointer is in the
wrong place.

Place your pointer on a Selected (highlighted) file or group
of selected files or a folder and from the menu choose...
Send To / Compressed (zipped) Folder.
