please I really need you're help guys... a week ago my external hard drive got a virus and turn all the folders into shortcut and a folder "recycler" appears suddenly. I deleted the virus yet folders still on shortcut and recycler folder ( I really don't know what is that and how it appear) still there. Another thing is when you open one of the folder it shows files from documents and not the original file of it. I look on properties and shows the
target as: %windir%\system32\cmd.exe /c "start %cd%RECYCLER\9A5493C4656250E8CB27B9D64085563D.exe&&%windir%\explorer.exe H:\pictures"
target type: application
target location: system 32
please help me coz all the pictures and video of my baby is in this hard drive...

Try this 1

Step 1:

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

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

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

Step 2:

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

Here I assume your flash 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 flash drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in Flash Drive.

Step 3:

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

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.
