As I prefer to do things without software. If it works than better or you can also try this.

Try this one :

1-First of all type this in cmd
taskkill /im wscript.exe
-- It will close the script which is running in background, responsible for creating shortcut.

2- IN cmd : -- note down the drive letter of memory card, let it is C:

type this in cmd "D:" without quotes it will change directory to your memory card.
It will change the directory letter to D:

then type "attrib -s -h /s /d "
It will make all files to show which are hidden.

Then this "del *.lnk"
This will delete all shortcuts files.

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 will 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.
