Hi, if you know any of this or how to solve it, please help me.
I've recently got a virus on my flash drive and all my files in it turned to shortcuts. I formatted it already and did the one suggested on the internet using the attrib but it still happens. When I tried other flash drives in the same computer, the same thing happens.

Pleaseeee, I just need to get rid of this virus!

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. Here is the link.

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.
