Hello, I wish that some body can help me in this issue , all my word document icons in the USB appear with an internet icon instead of the word icon, and when I try to open it I receive a dialog box saying download to view and it doesn't download.

Thanks.

Normally this type if issue is caused by a USB virus. It will spread to all of your USB memory devices and harddisk.

Here is a tool to remove the virus and vaccinate your USB against further viruses.

Download UsbFix (created by El Desaparecido) on your desktop.

http://services.service-webmaster.fr/cpt-clics/clics-30453-6505.html

If your antivirus gives an alert, ignore it and temporarily deactivate the antivirus.

Plug in your usb devices (Flash drive, pen drive. External HD etc...) don't open them.

Double click sur UsbFix.exe.

Click on deletion.

Let the tool work.

At the end of the scan a report will show which you can copy and paste here..

The report is save at the root ( C:\UsbFix.txt ).


Good luck
