What is a trojan horse dropper generic rgq

Using AVG I have just found over 14000 of these in a directory windows\fonts\". They all have names of films, songs, games, programmes etc. and all have a .zip extension.

Can anyone please tell me what they are, how they got there and how to avoid getting them again.

Thanks

It is a program that can be used to install other malicious software:
A Trojan Downloader is a program typically installed through an exploit or some other deceptive means and that facilitates the download and installation of other malware and unwanted software onto a victim's PC. A Trojan Downloader may download adware, spyware or other malware from multiple servers or sources on the internet.

How did you get it: probably from P2P networks...

How to avoid them: stop using P2P networks or dont download executable files
