    UUUUUUUU.uuu persists on SD, Android despite following multiple web suggestions

    I purchased a "new" Huawei Ascend Y330 and Samsung microSDHC card. Apparently something had been used previously as I have the UUUUUUUU.uuu virus(?). It does not seem to wipe out my current data, but whenever I create a new folder it fills the new folder with 1024 more folders all called UUUUUUUU.uuu, none of which can I open or delete. I believe these folders have been created on the SD card both when it is in my SD slot in my laptop, and when it is in my Android phone. (It does not happen to folders on my laptop.) If I pop the SD card into my laptop, Windows scans and fixes it so that I can delete the new folder and all the bogus sub-folders.

    Initially I had been just using Microsoft Security Essentials. Then I got Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10. Neither have identified any viruses or other problems. I have tried various suggestions I've found on the internet, including ComboFix.

    I have a 2Tb external hard drive that also connects through USB, so would want to make sure it is clean also, in addition to the laptop, SD card and Android mobile phone.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    One more thing I had forgotten to mention: I have also tried reformatting the SD card, and reseting the phone to factory settings and still the problem comes back.
