Thank you

Follow all the steps given below.
  • 1) Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"
    • Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your pendrive now.
    • This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives and plug your pen drive to remove the autorun.inf file from it also. [Note : Make sure Dot Net Framework is installed in your PC.
    • OR Click on the below link and download the Dot Net Framework]
  • 2) Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and press Enter. Here I assume your pendrive 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 : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.
    • Now check for your files.
  • 3) After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

Good Luck
