This type issue could be caused by a USB virus. It will spread to all of your USB memory devices and hard disk.

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.

Sorry, I don't understand your question.

Have you tried to post your question in French on our French forum (Comment ça marche) ?

If external Hard drive gets a virus just scan with Anti-Virus program after updating it then it will tell you what the file name is that cause the alert after which you Google the file name find out what it is supposed to do and what other nasty files are associated with it then you can manually delete it any associated files.

Why would you disable the anti-virus if it is the external Hard drive infected what idoit proposed that and use USB Fix exe,

You should never disable your anti-virus program once it is configured correctly even for installing new software and games unless your offline and know what program is infected.

Time and time again I see experts and novice misinform end users.
