recently my pc was affected by "cool.vbs" virus.simply its known as shortcut virus. i am using norton antivirus but it can not detect this. whenever i connect pen drive to it, this virus automatically hide all of data and create a shortcut form of data name. i talked microsoft and norton antivirus company for that issue but they can not help me any more. they took control my pc via remote control to remove this virus. but unfortunately they could not do it. they suggested me to take my pc to servicing center to remove such kind of virus. but in bangladesh most of computer servicing centers are the factory of virus. so i feel afraid to take it to them. i want to remove this virus by myself. can you help me to remove it form my hard drive ? i think i can remove it in safe mode..can you give me the procedure to remove this virus permanently??waiting for your answer..

Hello,

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.
