Hello,

Try this 1.

Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK.

"Command Prompt" will be opened --> Since you have mentioned it as F drive.

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d f:\*.*

Now press "Enter"

Now wait for the process to get completed.

Now check your F Drive.

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.
