Good day and hope everyone is doing GooD.

A virus called worm/generic_r.JV has found a way through on my external drive and onto my PC I have. Been trying to get it off of one so I can fix the other bbut to get rid of it on either seems like a bigger challenge than I thought.

The virus changes my folders to an application when scanned with AVG it detects and romoves it but after my folders are gone. The data is still on the drive but I cannot access them as they do not show anymore as if the drive is empty but all the data is there I can see in my computer.

Is there any way around this please help I don't want to lose all this data.

Thanks Rayno

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.
