What makes you suspect that you have a virus?  If you did a virus scan and it indicated you had a virus, you need to use an AV program to remove it.  Run a scan at RAV and set it to automatically clean anything it finds.

If the RAV scan does not indicate a virus, leave those files alone.  Your settings have been changed to show hidden files and you are just seeing normal system files that are not a virus.  You can go into View | Folder Options and check to hide System and Hidden Files from view.  They will still be there, you just won't see them.

An .ini file is one that initializes some program or process when it is run.  Many programs on your computer save settings to their own .ini file.

An .htt file is the file that will allow the folder it is placed in to display a certain way.

Run the RAV scan and post back to let us know what you've found.
