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
