So i picked up a virus in my pendrive which turned all my files and folders into shortcuts. So I went online and referred to a few posts.
I went to the hidden folders and copied all the contents (which werent hidden) to anorther folder on my computer and format my pendrive.
It still has this VNScript File named vgzzizniyh. (which wont delete -_-)

I also tried run>cmd > attrib -h -r -s /s /d h:\*.*
nothing happened (and yes its h: )

files are still turning into shortcuts when i copy them to the drive. Idk What to do, help!

P.S. Its Windows 7 and i use EScan antivirus which just updated and still it didnt detect the virus (i scaned like 15 times),i realised its a virus when i googled it. so whatsup with that?

Hello,

# Download UsbFix on your computer, and execute it.
# It will launch automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
# Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...) Do not open them.
# Choose " Deletion " option.


#The computer wille re-start, and it may be longer than usually.


# UsbFix will display a message at re-start.


# Click "OK" to start cleaning.
# Copy/paste the report here.
