Dear friends... Please help me to solve this problem.

I am using Windows 8... I am getting shortcuts for my pendrive when I put to laptop.. I tried below process... Its Not working for me.

Try this 1.

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"

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your pendrive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives and plug your handy drive to

remove the autorun.inf file from it also.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your 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 : Replace the letter g with your drive letter.

Now check for your files in drive.

Step 3:

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".
