Step 1:

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

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

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

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

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

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://ccm.net/download/download-24089-usbfix

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 ).

You can also vaccinate against any virus.
Thanks for the reply.
Actually the problem is not with flash drive. my system got attacked with some sought of virus like its showing 100's of windows update icons in hidden icons. and when ever I try to send any file to my flash drive its getting converted to shortcuts. how can I solve this? I have got nearly 450gb of data in my system. and the main thing is am UNABLE TO INSTALL ANY KIND OF PROGRAMS. how can I solve all these problem?
