i run a windows 7 32 bit......
i have been suffering from this hidden file called fofo.vbe......
it can't be deleted.....
if I delete it....after a while it comes back.....
and if I send anything in my pendrive it turns into a shortcut file and no matter what the file size is....
it shows the size of 1 kb......
and it remains hidden all the time until I turn off the hidden files option.......
and if I click it....it opens another window where it shows my real file......
what is in a hidden form too......
i scanned my entire system along with the pendrive with kaspersky internet security 2013 version 13.0.1.4190(h) and smadav2013 Rev.9.3
but nothing was found......
i can't get rid of this thing and this is excruciating......
and I have almost done everything including the "cmd" procedures......
please someone help me out.........

Just occured to be that a vbe virus may be caused by an effected removable memory device.

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

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 ).

P.S. If the does not complete, repeat in safe mode.

If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in

hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:

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

https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/5911-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/downloads/security-and-maintenance/4621-malwarebytes-anti-malware/

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.
