Hello,

If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in

hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your pendrive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your pendrive and also from drives.

Step 2:

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

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

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

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in Pen Drive.

Step 3:

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

http://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes-anti-malware

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
Click on start --> run --> type control folders and press enter. Folder Options will be opened.
Click on view tab --> select the option "show hidden files and folders" and uncheck the check box
"hide protected operating system files" and click on OK. Now look for your files in your pen drive.

Can this process be run on an internal hard drive? I've had the virus infect some C drives and would like to repair them without re-imaging.
