boo files on windows media player

Specs: Windows XP
I am a computer retard and I have recently been downloading free mp3 files in order to create a sound design for a play. I have gone to various sites and collected sound effects and songs. I have also used "audacity to edit some of my sound effects. One day I went into windows media player to open a playlist which I had edited on audacity. All of a sudden there were over a hundred files on a play list labeled boo123... etc... also, next to those files a red circle with a white "x" inside of it popped up. I assumed it was just editing flukes. Like I said, I am computer retarded all I did to solve the problem was delete the files. Tonight, the same thing happened to a playlist in Windows Media Player that is completely unrelated to my sound design work. Can someone please help me figure out what exactly a "boo virus" is, what threat it poses to a PC laptop and how to fix the issue?

Even googling the boo virus was risky, some sites tried to infect me.

Run all these online scans.

How can I view the log file from ESET Online Scanner?

Or, here is how to remove it manually.
