Virus mane is 'ecc7c8c51c0850c1ec247c7fd3602f20.exe' It create the short cut of every file present on this usb drive. No antivirus or anti malware detect it, it is hidden. command prompt is also not solving the problem.

Hello,

Try this 1

There might be an autorun.inf file which is creating such an issue for you.

Follow all the steps given below

1) Disable the "Autoplay" feature. Click on the below link "Disable Autoplay",

and download the file --> Double-click on it and follow the instructions.

Disable Autoplay

2) Disable the "Autorun.inf". Click on the below link and follow the instructions.

First backup your registry. Click on Start --> Run --> Type regedt32 and press

Enter. "Registry Editor" will be opened.

Now backup your registry by going to "File --> Export" --> Save the file with

any name in your desired location.

Copy the text starting from "REGEDIT4" upto @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

REGEDIT4                  
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]                  
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"  

Open a "Notepad" --> Paste it --> Save the file as fix.reg

Note: Don't forget the extension "reg"

Now double-click on the fix.reg file and then click on "Yes" to merge it,

[Note : After following the above instructions, whenever you place any autoplay

CD\DVD all you have to do is go to "My Computer" --> Open the CD\DVD drive

--> You have to double-click on the setup file.]

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

4) Click on the below link and download the file "USBFix".

Open the USBFix --> Click on "Deletion" and follow the onscreen instructions.

After completion of "Deletion" process, click on "Vaccinate".

download it.

Make sure you connect your pen drive also.

Good Luck

Thanks for helping, one thing I got forgotten was, I use 'Windows 7 Pro'
Start is there but 'run' (for reg edit) not found.
However I managed and especially thanks for providing link for
that nice software 'UsbFix'.

Thanks
