Hello,
Recently my USB got infected with the shortcut virus. I used cmd and was able to remove the virus but I am still unable to recover my pictures. They are still apparently unavailable. Is it possible they are permanently gone? Please help!

Thank you
Hello,

Your flash drive and computer have been infected with a worm.
# Download USB Fix click here
  • Launch it, a shortcut will be created on your desktop.

  • Choose "Clean" option.
  • A pop-up will follow
    Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, sd cards external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will lose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

The numbers of analyzed and infected elements are displayed.

# Copy/paste the report here.
