vritual root - whats this?

On my C Drive I have a greyed out folder called: vritual root What is this? I have run virus scan and it seems to be fine, no issues, PC works fine, - i recently isntalled comodo - is that connected? If it is a virus then I am amazed. I have never visited any site that could have infected me - ill be pissed if it is a might be the final straw to make me migrate to linux Its also worth mentioning that all virus scans have proved fine and the folder is just empty? V odd... Also a google search doesnt really show anything.... thanks!

You know what....

I think i know what this is....

if you put that into google - DONT DO IT - it takes you to a site that has optimised that keyword - and it "helps" you by offering to scan your PC...

i.e. a simple but also rather pathetic way to infect you...

But still id apprecaite any help on this thanks!!! *************************** Sorry about this, I have written my post, corrected myself and now solved it!!

It's a root directory that refers to another directory. That way the name can stay the same even if the physical root location changes.

Do you have a web server like IIS running?
